Maine 31, Monmouth, N.J. 23

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Jared Turcotte carried 29 times for 144 yards, including a 51-yarder in the second quarter that put Maine ahead to stay in a 31-23 victory over Monmouth on Saturday.

After Kyle Frazier's 16-yard touchdown run gave Monmouth a 10-7 lead, the Black Bears (1-1) had a fourth-and-1 at their own 49 with a little over four minutes left in the first half. Turcotte broke two tackles in the backfield before bursting through the right side on his 51-yarder that gave Maine the lead for good.

Turcotte also scored on runs of 3 yards in the first quarter and 7 yards in the fourth. The 7-yarder, which put Maine ahead 31-20, came after Steven Barker returned a short kickoff to the 18-yard line of the Hawks (0-2).

Eric Spillane kicked his third field goal of the game, from 37 yards, with 3:05 left to cut the lead to 31-23, but Maine was able to run out the clock.
