Northeast-10 Weekly Notes:

Stonehill: Freshman QB Cruz Parsons (Signal Hill, Calif.) tied the Skyhawk single-game record with six touchdown passes in just his second collegiate start, as he matched Tony DelloIacono's mark of six scoring passes set nearly 11 years to the date (October 2, 1994) in a Stonehill win over M.I.T. Parsons accounted for 97.2 percent of the Skyhawks' total offense in Saturday's win over Saint Anselm with 275 passing yards and 41 rushing yards and has thrown seven touchdown passes overall in two collegiate starts. Senior WR Mike Plichta (Milford, Mass.) set a Stonehill single-game record with five touchdown receptions, as he was on the receiving end of 12 Parsons passes for a career-high 179 yards. Plichta, who entered the game with three touchdown receptions on the season, eclipsed the previous Skyhawk single game mark of four scores set by three individuals, and he also tied former Bentley standout Dallas Mall's Northeast-10 record for touchdown receptions in a game first set in 2001. Plichta's 30 points scored is the second highest single-game total in conference history, and his 12 receptions mark the sixth highest single-game total in league history as well. Saturday's triumph was Stonehill's second over Saint Anselm in the last three seasons. The last time the Skyhawks registered 40-plus points came by the same 41-7 score in a 2002 victory over Assumption. The Stonehill defensive unit came up with four turnovers (two fumbles, two inteceptions) and recorded five sacks in Saturday's win, as sophomore LB Jabari Prince (Mendon, Mass.) led the way with a career-high 13 total tackles. Stonehill's three league victories to date marks the Skyhawks' highest conference win slate in four seasons.
