Kats Fall to Milford; Joseph, Dykes Post Big Days

NORWICH, N.Y. (Oct. 30) - ECC sophomore running back Zedric Joseph ran for 100-or-more yards for the third consecutive game but the Erie Community College football team dropped a 47-24 non-conference contest Saturday to Milford Academy at Norwich High School.

Joseph, a sophomore from West Palm Beach, Fla., ran for 107 yards and a 58-yard touchdown and also caught a nine-yard touchdown pass. Joseph ran for 135 and 168 in the Kats' last two games.

Obadiah Dykes, a sophomore wide receiver from Newark, N.J., caught five passes for 130 yards, including an 88-yard touchdown. Dykes' 130 receiving yards rank second in ECC single-game history.

ECC, which was hampered by five interceptions and two lost fumbles, trailed 26-0 in the third quarter before Joseph broke down the left sideline for his 58-yard TD run. After ECC forced a punt, Taylor Henry found an open Dykes behind the Milford secondary. The Kats converted their second-straight two-point conversion and trailed 26-16.

A 48-yard pass put the Falcons in scoring territory and Tavon Henley scored from four yards out to make it 33-16. An ECC interception set up another Henley TD, this time from one yard out.

Joseph and Taylor Miller connected on a nine-yard pass to make it 40-24 when Miller converted the third PAT. Milford added a TD with 1:02 left.

ECC closes the season with a Northeast Football Conference game against ASA Nov. 6 in Brooklyn.
