Jacques Hacquebord led a solid defensive effort by the Lawrence University football team in a 15-13 loss to Beloit College on Saturday. Hacquebord recorded 10 tackles, including nine unassisted, recovered a fumble, and had an interception, his fourth of the season.
Hacquebord, who leads the Midwest Conference in interceptions, stopped two consecutive Beloit drives in the second quarter. With the Bucs driving, Hacquebord picked off Joe Herfel at the Beloit 36-yard line with 10:44 left in the first half. Ed Williams then fumbled on Beloit’s next possession, and Hacquebord was there to scoop it up at the Beloit 30-yard line.
