WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Jonathan Grimes rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown to lead William & Mary to a 34-24 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday.

The Tribe (5-2, 3-1 Colonial Athletic Conference) trailed 10-7 at halftime before scoring 24 second-half points.

Derek Cassidy was 27 of 41 for 225 yards, threw two touchdowns and ran for one for Rhode Island (2-7, 0-5), but also threw three interceptions.

William & Mary took a 14-10 lead on Jake Phillips' 18-yard pass to D.J. McAulay with 13:23 left in the third, and increased its margin to 21-10 on Courtland Marriner's 8-yard run about five minutes later.

Phillips was 15 of 24 for 207 yards and one touchdown.

Cassidy scored on a 1-yard run to cut the lead to 21-17 but David Caldwell returned an interception 62 yards for a touchdown and Brian Pate kicked two field goals to put the game out of reach.
