Holy Cross 26, Georgetown 13

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Holy Cross reserve quarterback Brian McSharry came off the bench and threw for 181 yards and a touchdown to lead Holy Cross to a 26-13 win over Georgetown on Saturday.

McSharry entered the game in the second quarter after starter Dominic Randolph left the game with an apparent leg injury.

Running backs Terrance Gass and Mike Kielt helped McSharry and the Crusaders (1-0, 1-0 Patriot League) out as they both scored rushing touchdowns.

Georgetown (0-1, 0-1), which has lost seven straight to Holy Cross, got most of its offense from quarterback Ben Hostetler, who finished 20-for-34 for 168 yards and one touchdown. Hostetler also scored on a 2-yard run with 6:20 left in the third quarter.

Holy Cross jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the second quarter after a 2-yard run by Gass and a 10-yard pass from McSharry to Matt Fanning just seconds before halftime.

Kielt scored with 8:05 left in the fourth quarter to put the Crusaders ahead 26-6.
