Wagner 38, Marist 7

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- Jason Butler rushed for two touchdowns while Wagner defenders forced three turnovers and blocked a punt, helping the Seahwaks to a 38-7 victory at Marist on Saturady night.

Butler ran for 80 yards on 15 carries, and Aliga Betts lead the Wagner offense with 90 rushing yards.

Wagner (3-0) took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter after Piotr Czech kicked a 27-yard field goal. Kevin Maroney forced a Marist fumble that was recovered by Thomas Larsen, setting up Czech's kick.

Marist (1-2) took its only lead in the second quarter when Keith Mitchell caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Steven McGrath.

Wagner then took the lead for good with just 24 seconds left in the first half when Joe Kinard caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Matt Abbey.

The Seahawks then scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Two touchdowns were scored after Marist penalties kept Wagner drives alive, and the game's last score followed a blocked punt by Charles Bryant.
