Associated Press

LORETTO, Pa. -- Matt Abbey's 33-yard touchdown pass lifted Wagner to a 17-13 win over winless St. Francis, Pa. on Saturday.

Wagner (3-4, 1-2 Northeast Conference) trailed 13-7 heading into the fourth quarter. Eric Ortiz kicked a 38-yard field goal with 12:06 left before Abbey hooked up with Collins to take the lead.

The go-ahead score was set up when St. Francis was forced to punt from its own end zone. The Red Flash started the possession at their own 32 but were forced all the way back to their own 4-yard line before punting. Abbey found Collins for the score on the next play.

St. Francis (0-7, 0-4) could not muster any offense on its final two possessions.

Abbey completed 15 of his 35 attempts for 229 yards for the Seahawks. George Little completed just eight of 23 passes but threw touchdown passes of 14 yards to Omar Winston and 19 yards to Ryan Zarnich for St. Francis.

The Wagner defense held St. Francis to just 87 yards passing and forced two turnovers.

Scott Lewis recorded 23 tackles for St. Francis.
