11/1/2003

NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Brad Shushman kicked a 36-yard field goal in
overtime to give Delaware a 24-21 win over Maine on Saturday.

In overtime, a Black Bear 35-yard field goal attempt was blocked
by defensive tackle Chris Mooney. It was his second block of the
game.

The Blue Hens (9-0, 6-0 Atlantic 10 Conference) took over and
drove the ball to the 19-yard line, setting up Shushman's field
goal for the win. Shushman had missed two field goals earlier in
the game.

In the fourth quarter, Delaware's Sidney Haugabrook returned the
Brown Bears' punt to the Maine 39-yard line.

With just 1:34 left in the game, Hall threw a 39-yard pass to
David Boler, who played the final three quarters with a broken rib,
down the right sideline to tie the game.

Delaware trailed Maine (5-4, 4-3) 21-0 to the end of the third
quarter. With just 12 seconds left in the quarter, Andy Hall's
two-yard run put the Blue Hens on the board.

Maine's Marcus Williams, who finished with 111 yards rushing for
his fifth 100-yard game of the season, scored on two 1-yard dives
in the first half.

Black Bear Ron Whitcomb completed 21 of 34 passes for 246 yards
and connected with Christian Pereira on an 11-yard scoring pass.
