Holy Cross 29, Lafayette 24

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Eddie Houghton ran for two touchdowns and Ryan Taggert threw for two more as Holy Cross beat Lafayette 29-24 on Saturday, snapping a two-game losing streak.

Houghton capped off a six-play, 65-yard opening drive with a 12-yard run to give the Crusaders an early 7-0 lead. Taggert then threw touchdowns to Alex Schneider from 2 yards out and Gerald Mistretta from 21 yards out to give Holy Cross (4-5, 2-2 Patriot League) a 23-10 lead with 3:06 to play in the first half.

Taggert finished with 225 yards on 23-of-32 passing and added 74 rushing yards.

Andrew Shoop attempted to rally Lafayette (4-5, 1-2), throwing two touchdowns to Mark Ross to help the Jaguars take a 24-23 lead with 9:08 left in the third quarter. But Houghton scored again, this time from 7 yards out, to cap off a 15-play drive that started at the Crusaders' own 3-yard line.
