NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Mike McClelland scored three touchdowns to lead Monmouth past winless Iona 40-14 on Saturday.

McClelland scored on 15- and 26-yard catches -- his only receptions -- and a 4-yard return of a blocked punt.

Brendan Kennedy was 10-for-15 for 128 yards and two TDs for the Hawks (4-1), who opened up a 30-0 lead. Starter Brian Boland was 6-for-20 for 169 yards and one TD.

Mike Diehl finished 15-for-26 for 193 yards, with two TDs and four interceptions for the Gaels (0-4). Diehl's 18-yard pass to Dennis Calacione at 6:46 of the second quarter avoided a shutout, 30-7.

Calacione finished with seven catches for 117 yards. Monmouth's Mike Austin had five catches for 146 yards and a touchdown.
