I was proud of the way he was able to handle the challenge.’ While Carroll at times struggled to guide the NU offense down the field, the penalties’ stalled the Husky attack. Trailing 10-7 coming out of halftime, Northeastern committed four infractions on its first two possessions of the half that resulted in the offense moving backwards 29 yards on their first two set of downs.
‘Those are drive killers,’ Hager said. ‘We put ouself in a bind offensively because of it, and that’s not easily overcome if you have a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback in your backfield, nor if you have a redshirt freshman back there for you,’ Hager said.
Maine pushed the lead to two scores in the third quarter as sophomore quarterback Warren Smith, who alternated series with starting senior Mike Brusko, found senior wideout Landis Williams down the middle of the field for a 47-yard touchdown strike that helped make the score 17-7 in favor of the visitors.

The first opportunity ended with a turnover on downs as Carroll could not complete a fourth down pass to senior tight end Ty Sibert. After the Black Bears fumbled the ball away on their next possession, the Huskies had one final opportunity, but again were denied as Carroll was sacked as time expired.
Hager said his team will use its practice time to improve their performance inside the 20 yard line.
‘Tuesday’s practice, Wednesday’s practice, and Thursday’s practice, the red zone is going to get worked on the offensive side for sure,’ he said.
The squad will take the field in search of their first win next Saturday at 1 p.m. as it plays non-conference opponent Youngstown State at Parsons Field.
