Shrine bowl more of the same; NH rolls, 43-0
Trinity of Manchester running back Romeo Masuku rushed for two touchdowns to help New Hampshire extend its winning streak to 13 games with a 43-0 victory.
Masuku's second TD appeared to break Vermont's spirit. It came on a 40-yard run that capped the second half's opening possession. Souhegan of Amherst's Tyler Ford then made the first of his four point-after kicks to give New Hampshire a 22-0 lead.
Tight end Graham Nyhan (Laconia), quarterback Connor Benjamin (Goffstown), running back Tolbert Nemo (Concord) and running back Tyler Grant (Exeter) scored New Hampshire's other touchdowns.
It was the first time Vermont failed to score in the game since 2008, when New Hampshire posted a 29-0 victory.
The first half ended on a positive note for New Hampshire, which received a 42-yard field goal from Ford as time expired. It was the longest field goal in the game's history, and handed New Hampshire a 15-0 halftime lead.
New Hampshire grabbed a 6-0 lead on its opening possession when Masuku scored on a 5-yard run around right end with 7:12 left in the first quarter. The lead grew to 12-0 after Benjamin hooked up with Nyhan for a 55-yard TD pass with 7:02 to play in the half.
