Former Cony standout quarterback Luke Duncklee enjoyed his first impact game for Colby College in a 41-13 setback to Middlebury in a New England Small College Athletic Conference game Saturday afternoon.
Duncklee played sparingly in a season-opening 28-10 loss to Trinity because of a few nagging injuries.
Colby coach Ed Mestieri said Duncklee got banged up during the week leading up to that game.
However, Mestieri added that he was excited to get the freshmen more involved in the offense.
“We have some plays for him,” Mestieri said after the loss to Trinity.
Duncklee was certainly involved Saturday.
He rushed for a team-high 73 yards and a touchdown on just six carries. He also returned two kickoffs for a combined 62 yards.
