POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- James Luft threw for 268 yards to lead
Marist to a 28-14 win over Siena Saturday.
Luft hit six receivers in the effort and ran for a touchdown as
Marist gained 352 total yards to Siena's 183 yards. Brad Rowe (76
yards, 11 carries) scored the first touchdown on a 46-yard
breakaway in the first quarter.
The game was tied at 14 at halftime, but Luft ran 3 yards for a
score early in the third quarter at the end of a 43-yard drive.
Marist (2-1) sealed the win with a five-minute, 97-yard drive
capped by Alfredo Riullano's 2-yard run that left just 13 seconds
left on the clock.
In the first half, Siena came back against Marist. Siena's
Brandon Matano returned a punt 90 yards for a touchdown to tie the
score. Minutes later running back Sal Jeraci broke away for 44
yards on the first play of the series for a touchdown and a 14-7
lead for Siena.
Marist's Guy Smith recovered a fumble in the end zone with
seconds remaining to tie the score at half.
For Siena (0-3), Jeraci had a game-high 115 yards on 19 carries
and Christian Karolus when 6-for-15 for 79 yards, but was sacked
three times. Pat McCormack caught seven passes for 78 yards.
