Delaware St. 23, Winston-Salem 20

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Peter Gaertner kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired Saturday to lead Delaware State to a 23-20 victory over Winston-Salem State.

It's the fourth time this season that the Hornets (8-1) have staged a fourth-quarter rally.

Gaertner kicked three field goals, the second of which tied the score at 6-6 with 14:13 left in the first half.

Delaware State broke the tie three minutes later when Vashon Winton threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Shaheer McBride for a 12-6 edge.

The Rams (5-4) reclaimed the lead on Jed Bines' 3-yard scoring run in the third quarter, and the defense added a score when defensive end William Hayes forced a fumble, picked it up and ran 6 yards for a touchdown.

Chris Strother's 1-yard touchdown run with 5:31 left capped an 86-yard drive, and the Hornets ran 3 minutes, 18 seconds off the clock to set up Gaertner's game-winning kick.
