GREENCASTLE, Indiana -- The Kenyon Lords football team fell on the road to the DePauw University Tigers, 44-0 on Saturday.

The Tigers went 56 yards in five plays to cap the opening drive with a touchdown, and rolled from there.

Down 14-0, Kenyon tried to cut into the DePauw lead before the end of the first quarter. Quarterback Ryan O’Leary led his team to the Tiger 8-yard line, but an interception on third down halted the Lords momentum.

The defense started the second quarter on the field for the Lords. The Tigers pushed down the field inside the Kenyon red zone and settled for a field goal.

The Lords offense couldn’t build off of the defensive stops, giving the ball back to DePauw on all three series in the quarter. The final drive of the half led to a Tiger touchdown and a 31-0 lead at halftime.

Down 38-0 in the third quarter, A.J. Allen and the Lords started gaining positive yardage as they neared the DePauw red zone, but an interception thwarted the drive.

The Tigers found the end zone once more in the final quarter to make it 44-0.

Mychael Leno led the Lords on defense with 10 tackles, nine of which were solo. On offense, Finn Murray led Kenyon with 80 yards on four receptions.

The Lords return home for a homecoming game matchup with Oberlin College on Sept. 25 at noon.
