FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Marques McCray threw for one touchdown and rushed for another and Sacred Heard defeated Morgan State 21-7.
Both teams scored on their opening possession before the Pioneers grabbed the lead with one second to play in the first half when McCray hit Rob DiNota for a 6-yard touchdown.
Sacred Heart wrapped up the defensive struggle with a punishing 12-play, 89-yard touchdown in the third quarter, scoring on Malik Grant’s 3-yard run. Grant finished with 125 yards on 25 carries.
A good return on the opening kick set up the Bears for Romello Kimbrough’s 1-yard plunge.
