Iona Beats AIC

Iona defeated AIC 50-18 Thursday in Liberty Conference action, bolstering the Gaels' case for a D1A Top 20 rankings spot (which they hold now already).

Iona saw Watson Filikitonga return to action and he scored four tries, including two in the first ten minutes. Connor Buckley, Lavar James, Bryce Stanback, and Mike Scarcella also scored tries.

AIC scored two tries relatively late in the game as the Iona defense had another solid day.

"When we played direct and we run hard and we clear out and we don't try to get it all in one place," said Iona Head Coach Bruce McLane. McLane added that Iona looks very good when the team doesn't try to get it all in a single phase, but, he added, "when we look for fools gold we are incredibly average."
