HOBART | Joe Jumonville is in his first year as Munster's quarterback, and on Friday night he made sure no one would forget his name.

Jumonville set a school record with a 99-yard touchdown run en route to a 44-24 win over Hobart in Northwest Crossroads Conference action.

Jumonville was in on every one of his team's scores in the first half that led to a 31-7 lead. He ran for three scores and threw an 18-yard toss to Nick Powell.

"I didn't think I'd make it," said Jumonville, who had turned his ankle in the first quarter, then thought he wouldn't out-run anyone to the end zone. "It was tough. It was hurting a little bit, but I made it.

"Coach was calling the right plays at the right time and the line did a phenomenal job; they won the game for us."

The Northern Illinois baseball recruit throws the ball like a pitcher — he was 4-for-6 for 79 yards — and runs it like an outfielder — he had 120 yards and three touchdowns on eight carries.

"He's been a great addition to our team, and he was voted one of our captains, which shows you how popular he is," Munster coach Leroy Marsh said. "He's a Division I baseball player, and he doesn't play like it, he plays like he's trying to get a scholarship in football."

The Munster defense backed up Jumonville. With a pair of interceptions — from Powell and Anthony Conroyd — and a fumble recovered by Conroyd, the first half was dominated by the Mustangs (5-2, 3-1).

"Our defense has really improved so much and when they're doing good, they fire up the offense," Jumonville said. "There's not enough to say about them, they're awesome."

Hobart (4-3, 2-3) was able to capitalize on drives in the second half, scoring on a 10-yard pass from Andrew Barras to Drey Devereaux, on a Zach Satterfield 10-yard run and a field goal by Matt Plesac from 32 yards out.

Devereaux also scored the Brickies' only touchdown in the first half, a 61-yard scamper that pulled Hobart to within 14-7. It was after that score that Jumonville took off from the 1-yard line for the record-setting run.

Dom Lucito led Munster and all rushers with 160 yards. He scored twice in the second half.

"You've got to remember that two weeks ago we played without seven starters and last week we were without five, our little midget backs have been running great for us," said Marsh, who added that he's still without four injured starters. "We probably shouldn't be winning but we are."
