NEW YORK -- Nick Doscher passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead Wagner past Bryant 31-21 in a Northeast Conference showdown Saturday.

Doscher totaled 246 yards on 16 of 26 passing, and added 68 yards on 17 carries.

After a tied first half, David Lopez's 39-yard field goal gave Wagner (2-3, 2-1) its first lead early in the third quarter, 10-7.

Mike Westerhaus answered with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Harris, putting Bryant (0-5, 0-3) back on top 14-10. Harris led all receivers with nine catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns.

With 2:36 remaining in the third quarter, Doscher's 5-yard pass to Bryant Watts gave Wagner the lead 17-14. The Seahawks padded the lead just before the fourth quarter when Doscher connected with Anthony Carrington for a 70-yard touchdown pass.

After Bryant cut the lead to 24-21, Doscher's 19-yard touchdown run with 1:29 left sealed the victory.
