HOUGHTON - With seven different Michigan Tech University players scoring touchdowns, the Huskies took a 51-15 victory over Tiffin (Ohio) in their season opener Saturday at Sherman Field in Houghton.
Tech jumped out to a 24-0 lead in the first 18 minutes of the game and never looked back.
A 79-yard pass from Tyler Scarlett to Matt Curtin on the Huskies' second play from scrimmage set the tone. The Black and Gold went on to add touchdowns on a punt return, another pass, three runs and a fumble return.
"We were sloppy and squandered some points, but by-in-large, we never let them get a chance to get rolling," MYU head coach Tom Kearly said. "We scored some points unconventionally, and that always helps."
Michigan Tech racked up 494 yards of total offense. Perhaps more impressive was the Huskies' young defense, which held the Dragons to 269 total yards-just seven rushing.
