DURHAM – Grant Breneman plunged over the goal line from a yard out early in the second quarter for a touchdown, and that proved to be the difference in Colgate’s 10-3 win over News Hampshire on Saturday.

UNH fell to 0-2 for the first time in 16 years, and the sledding gets tougher next week as the Wildcats travel across the country to play Colorado.

Breneman engineered a seven-play, 63-yard drive that included a fourth-down, 12-yard completion to Nick Diaco that gave the Raiders a first down at the New Hampshire 27. On the ensuing play, however, Breneman’s pass was picked off in the end zone by Evan Horn to end the threat.

The Wildcats turned the ball over at their own 19 and Breneman nosed in for the score eight plays later.

The teams traded second-quarter field goals and neither team managed to score in the second half.

James Holland carried 18 times for 104 yards for Colgate (2-0) and Breneman completed 8 of 18 passes for 84 yards and an interception.

Christian Lupoli completed 14 of 24 passes for 133 yards for New Hampshire in his first start in place of the injured Trevor Knight.
