McGrath shines again

It was another big day for Liam McGrath (Haverford) and the Carnegie-Mellon defense. A week after he was named the University Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week, McGrath was in on a career-high four solo tackles as the Tartans (2-0) rolled over Allegheny, 37-7.
Carnegie-Mellon’s defense forced 10 straight punts and 11 consecutive scoreless possessions after Allegheny scored the first time it had the ball. McGrath, a senior cornerback, recorded the first two interceptions of his career in a thrilling 21-20 season-opening victory over Grove City a week earlier. His first pick came in the end zone and ended a Grove City drive. His second interception was in the fourth quarter and sealed the victory. He also was in on three solo stops.
