NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Dennis Davis scored on a 4-yard run late in
the third quarter, and Hofstra held on for a 10-6 win over Delaware
The Blue Hens (3-2 overall, 0-2 Atlantic 10) drove 63 yards to
pick up a first down on the 4-yard line with 1:16 remaining in the
game. But Hofstra (3-2, 1-1) forced Delaware quarterback Sonny
Riccio into four straight incompletions.
The game was played in a steady rain, and the muddy field
conditions limited both offenses.
Davis was 26-of-41 for 266 yards passing, while Devale Ellis had
eight catches for 106 yards. But the Pride finished with minus-11
yards rushing on 32 attempts.
Riccio was 20-of-50 for 248 yards as Delaware was limited to 73
yards rushing. The Hens, who lost their second in a row, took their
only lead when Zach Hobby kicked a 25-yard field goal for a 6-3
lead with 5:13 left in the third quarter.
Hofstra answered with a seven-play, 56-yard scoring drive,
capped by Davis' touchdown run.
The only other points came when the teams traded field goals
just before halftime.
Hofstra's Rob Zarrilli kicked a 48-yarder with 1:22 remaining,
matching his season best, before Hobby tied the game with a
22-yarder on the last play of the half.
Delaware's Omar Cuff had his streak of six straight 100-yard
rushing games stopped when he was held to 35 yards on 18 carries.
He did have eight catches for 105 yards.
