Unatego graduate Tosh DeMulder rushed for 167 yards and five touchdowns to lead Hartwick College to a 49-25 non-league football victory over visiting Morrisville that opened the season for the Hawks on Saturday.
DeMulder, The Daily Star's Player of the Year in 2003 when he led the Spartans to their first Section Four Class C title, scored on runs of 2, 2, 4, 17 and 20 yards.
First-year starting quarterback Brian Radley contributed 253 passing yards and two scores. Noah Koreman, who made seven receptions for 232 yards, caught both TD passes.
Hartwick, coming off a 7-3 season, opened the scoring 4 minutes, 44 seconds into play on a 2-yard touchdown run by DeMulder. Heath Dunn's extra point made it 7-0.
Morrisville answered with a seven-minute drive that covered 59 yards. Quarterback Jamieson Crast hit Nate McConnell with a 6-yard scoring pass, but Vincent Tardy's PAT missed.
On the Hawks' next offensive play, Radley found Koreman for a 56-yard touchdown play. Dunn's PAT gave Hartwick a 14-6 lead.
Crast narrowed Morrisville's deficit to 14-12 on a 39-yard scoring run with 45 seconds left in the first quarter. Crast's two-point pass was incomplete.
Radley then connected again with Koreman, this time for 36 yards, to set up DeMulder for a 2-yard scoring run.
Following a Morrisville punt, DeMulder gained 21 yards on two carries before Radley hit Koreman on a 43-yard completion. Two plays later, DeMulder's 4-yard scoring run made it 28-12.
In the third quarter, Radley and Koreman hooked up on a 35-yard scoring play and DeMulder scored on runs of 17 and 20 yards as Hartwick's lead ballooned to 49-18.
Defensively for the Hawks, Jordan Spirou led all tacklers with nine. Delhi graduate Chad Rockefeller, Oneonta High graduate Ben Tomaino, Nick Gonzalez and Tim Martin each had seven. Dan Contrastano and Brett Radley contributed two tackles for a loss, including one sack apiece.
Sidney graduate Kyle Morenus spelled Brian Radley at quarterback in the late going. Morenus, who helped the Warriors to a Class C state championship in 2005, went 1-for-3 for 8 yards.
Morenus' favorite target in high school, Colgate senior Pat Simonds, made four catches for 80 yards in the Raiders' season-opening 35-23 victory over visiting Monmouth on Saturday.
Hartwick travels to Salve Regina University in Middleton, R.I., at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Senior defender Marissa Mackay opened the scoring after junior Briana Crow took a shot from 15 yards that was deflected back out. Mackay one-timed the rebound from just inside the 18-yard line into the side netting for her first goal as a member of the Hawks.
Sophomore Krista Marzano converted a pass from senior Lauren Ploof with about six minutes left in the opening half. Ploof brought the ball into the box and slipped a pass to an oncoming Marzano, who tucked the ball into the goal for her second goal at Hartwick.
The Pacers scored twice in the second half to force overtime. Siobahn Blancaflor cut Marywood's deficit in half off a rebound in the 58th minute. Stephanie Hoffman tied it with 16 seconds left in regulation on a shot from the 18 that was touched by Hartwick keeper Kelly Griffin but went in.
