WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Andrew Shoop passed for 189 yards and a touchdown and Lafayette held off William & Mary 17-14 Saturday night in a rain-interrupted non-conference game.
The Leopards, 1-0, also relied on the running of Vaughn Hebron. He gained 66 yards, 14 coming on the game's first touchdown in the first quarter for a 7-0 Lafayette lead. The Leopards would never trail.

In the fourth quarter, Ethan Swerdlow gave the Leopards some breathing room with a 34-yard field goal. Raphael Ortiz, the Tribe's second quarterback of the night, threw a 32-yard scoring pass to McBride with 1:48 left. But Lafayette ran out the clock.
