GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Matthew Cesari's 29-yard fourth-quarter field goal was Furman's only score of the second half, but it was enough as the Paladins held off Delaware for a 23-21 victory on Saturday.

Cesari's kick gave Furman (3-1) a 23-14 lead with 13:59 remaining in the game.

Delaware (1-2) cut the advantage to 23-21 on Rob Schoenhoft's 14-yard pass to Aaron Love with 2:44 remaining but the Paladins were able to run out the clock.

Furman took a 7-0 lead on Tersoo Uhaa's first of two 1-yard touchdown runs with 10:56 remaining in the first quarter.

Delaware tied the game on Johnathon Smith's 2-yard run with 5:55 remaining in the first, but the Paladins took a 20-7 lead into halftime on Uhaa's second touchdown and Thomas Twitty's 20-yard interception return.

Smith's second 2-yard run cut the lead to 20-14 with 4:39 left in the third quarter.

Mike Brown caught five passes for 91 yards and rushed for 63 yards for Furman. Jordan Sorrells completed 17 of 30 passes for 263 yards.

Schoenhoft went 22 of 39 for 246 yards passing and four interceptions for Delaware. Love finished with nine catches for 90 yards and Smith had 94 yards rushing on 22 carries.
