HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -- Vashon Winton scored twice and threw the winning touchdown pass in the fourth quarter Saturday to give Delaware State a 24-17 victory over Hampton, ending an emotionally draining week that began with tragedy for the school.
The victory ended a week that began with the Delaware State campus locked down because of a double-shooting on Sept. 21. The victory was the first win for the Hornets (3-1, 2-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) at Hampton since 1969.
Winton appeared boxed in while trying to pass on third-and-goal from the Hampton 5. He escaped defenders and ran right, buying time until lofting a high pass to Jeff Postell with 11:39 to play.
Delaware State was helped by a 90-yard drive near the end of the first half in which Winton ran three times for 40 yards, including the scoring play from 11 yards out. That gave the Hornets a 17-14 halftime lead.
Winton also had a 1-yard TD run, and Peter Gaering had a 28-yard field goal in building that edge.
Hampton (3-1, 3-1) tied the score 17-17 on Carlo Turavani's 33-yard field goal early in the final quarter.
That's when Winton took over, leading the game-winning drive and then being helped by a Delaware State defense that ended its work by sacking Hampton's T.J. Mitchell on his own 13 on a fourth day play in the final minute.
