ALBION, Mich. – Markell McCoy rushed for 154 yards and a touchdown and the defense allowed just 153 total yards as Albion College opened the football season with a 56-6 victory over Defiance College.

Kyle Thomas threw a pair of touchdown passes – 7 yards to Kolby Canfield and 11 yards to Isaiah Gibson – and the Britons recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as Albion opened up a 21-0 first half lead.

Thomas threw his third touchdown pass of the night in the third quarter – a 26-yard connection with his brother, Justin – and Donovan Slates later returned an interception 50 yards for a score.

McCoy, Ryan Roberts and Phillip Jones-Price scored rushing touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Slates led the defense with 10 tackles, while Mitchell Arendsen was credited with 3 ½ tackles for loss.

Albion will hit the road next weekend, visiting Franklin College for a 6 p.m. game.
