Dougherty puts Brown into first place!

Former St. Thomas Aquinas quarterback Michael Dougherty put the Brown Bears into first place in the Ivy League last Saturday with a 34-27 win at Penn.

The senior directed the Bears' offense by completing 16 of 32 passes for 234 yards and four touchdowns.

The wide-open game came down to big plays and Brown made most of them. The biggest play of all came late in the fourth quarter and Brown holding a 28-20 lead. With 4:30 remaining on the clock, Penn gambled on fourth down and two at its own 28-yard line. Brown senior Nkosi Still came up with the big play, stopping the Quakers two yards short of a first down, and putting the Bears' offense on the field once again.

Brown put the game away two plays later when Dougherty faked a handoff to runningback Dereck Knight and lofted his fourth touchdown pass of the day, a 29-yard touchdown strike to uncovered tight end Colin Cloherty in the end zone, to give the Bears an insurmountable 34-20 lead with 4:05 left in the game.

Other South Floridians who compete for the first place Brown squad include offensive lineman Scott Hamilton (St. Thomas), receiver Kyle Johnson (St. Thomas) and lineman Alex Shields (Wellington).
