Finger wag negates Harvard Crimson RB Devin Darrington's touchdown vs. Yale Bulldogs

18 November 2018

Two plays later, O'Connor scored on a 1-yard run and Yale tied it with the PAT. "He came to me and said, "coach, I'll play". "Honest to goodness. It was such a bang-bang play".

Stewart's 15-yard pass to Jack Cook gave Harvard a 28-24 lead with 5 minutes left in the third, then another Yale field goal cut the deficit to one point. "We had our share of challenges this year". "We struggled at times this season but the effort, the attutide and the resiliency have been there every single day".

The penalty was not the last adversity the Crimson were to face.

Harvard running back Devin Darrington was left crimson-faced after having a touchdown run called back during his school's 45-27 win over Yale on Saturday.

But he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting a Yale defender before reaching the goal line.

On the Crimson's next possession, Darrington again broke loose, gaining 27 yards to the 6.

Instead the ball was brought back to the Yale 18-yard line and Harvard had to settle for a field goal on the drive.

The sophomore running back had nine rushes for 91 yards and a pair of touchdowns. "It's that simple. It was the right call".

"He's a great kid".

The band played "Sweet Caroline" early in the fourth quarter in keeping with Red Sox tradition at Fenway, which has hosted college football periodically since it opened in 1912. "He got overwhelmed by the moment and did something that wasn't particularly classy, and that's not what we do, and that's not who he is".

"Heartbreaking for that to happen that late in the game, that late in his career", said Murphy. He didn't throw a pass all week.

It was a back-and-forth affair for the first three quarters. Tyler Adams ran for 125 yards on just five carries for Harvard, including a 62-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

A shanked punt by Galland led to Stewart connecting with senior Brian Dunlap on a 43-yard hookup to the Yale 26. Darrington later atoned for his transgression with scoring scampers of 4 and 16 yards with 7:59 and 3:51, respectively, to play.
