Smith Catches Three TD Passes as Cortland Rolls Past Hartwick, 56-3


ONEONTA, N.Y. - Jake Smith (Albany/Guilderland) caught seven passes for 176 yards, including a school record-tying three touchdowns, and Cortland finished with a 608-145 advantage in total offense as the Red Dragons defeated host Hartwick, 56-3, in an Empire 8 contest. Cortland won its fourth straight game to improve to 6-1 overall and 4-1 in league play. The Red Dragons have scored at least 33 points in all seven games this fall, including more than 50 points four times.

Tommy Heuer (Oceanside) went 6-of-7 through the air for 91 yards and a score as Cortland rolled up 417 passing yards.

John Babin holds both of those school records with 30 career TD catches (2010-11, 13-14) and nine straight games with a TD catch (2011, 2013). Coinci
