Larry Woolard '02 flipped into the endzone from two yards out for the TD. After Tufts cut the margin to 13-7 following a Wesleyan fumble and subsequent 43-yard drive, Wesleyan tacked on the final points when Matt Perceval '00 caught a Kevin Cornish '02 pass on a quick slant, eluded one tackler and outraced the rest of the Tufts defense to the endzone for a 60-yard score.
