Richmond 16, Delaware 15

NEWARK, Del. -- Richmond's Kevin Grayson blocked a 23-yard field goal attempt with 38.1 seconds remaining and the Spiders held on to edge Delaware 16-15 on Saturday.

Delaware (1-1, 0-1 Colonial Athletic Association) picked up a first down at the Richmond 9-yard line on Pat Devlin's 33-yard pass to Mark Mackey. After three running plays moved the ball to the 6, Grayson blocked Jon Striefsky's 23-yard field goal attempt.

Andrew Howard's 23-yard field goal with 5:54 remaining gave the Spiders (2-0, 1-0) a 16-15 advantage. The field goal came four plays after an interception and 33-yard return by Darryl Hamilton gave Richmond the ball at Delaware's 10.

Eric Ward was 22-for-33 for 247 yards and a touchdown to pace defending Football Championship Subdivision national champion Richmond, which has won 11 games in a row. He also ran for 46 yards and a TD on 10 carries.
