This past Saturday the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps football team earned their first shutout since Sept. 29, 2001 when they defeated Occidental 37-0. Brendan MacDonald was a huge part of the defensive effort with a team-high eight tackles in the game. The senior linebacker also forced a fumble and recorded 1.5 sacks.
In the third quarter, MacDonald ripped the ball free from a receiver over the middle and took the ball down to the 10 yard line setting up a quick, one-play drive that gave the Stags their final score of the afternoon.
On the season, MacDonald has recovered a pair of fumbles, registered 2.5 sacks, and compiled a team-high 26 tackles.
