HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Shawn Brady threw a 22-yard touchdown
pass to Shane Hopkins in the second overtime to give Northeastern a
37-34 victory over Hofstra Saturday, snapping the Huskies'
four-game losing streak.

Brady finished 16-of-29 for 221 yards for the Huskies (4-6, 3-4
Atlantic 10). He also caught a 40-yard TD pass on a flea-flicker
from running back Cory Parks that gave Northeastern a 24-21 lead
with 1:31 left in regulation.

Chris Onorato of the Pride (5-5, 3-4) sent the game into
overtime with a 40-yard field goal with 9 seconds on the clock.

In the first overtime, the Huskies went up 31-24 on Maurice
Murray's 3-yard run, but Hofstra evened the score on Anton
Clarkson's third TD pass of the day, an 8-yard toss to Charles
Sullivan.

The Pride took a 34-31 lead in the second extra session on
Onorato's 30-yard field goal before Brady connected with Hopkins
for the win.

Clarkson completed 28 for 49 passes for 290 yards.

Onorato's second field goal was the 49th of his career, an
Atlantic-10 record.
