PRINCETON, N.J. (AP)-- Jeff Terrell threw for 261 yards and three
touchdowns as Princeton continued its dominance of Lafayette with a
26-14 victory Saturday night.
J.J. Artis made two key fourth-quarter interceptions for
Princeton (2-0), which rallied to defeat Lafayette (2-2) for the
8th straight time at home. The Tigers lead the overall series
Princeton sealed the win in the fourth quarter, when sophomores
Will Thanheiser and R.C. Lagomarsino caught their first career
touchdown passes to erase a 14-13 Lafayette lead. Lafayette had
gone ahead on Jonathan Hurt's 2-yard run in the third quarter,
culminating a six-play, 33-yard drive that began after a Torian
Thanheiser, though, caught a 14-yard pass from Terrell with
13:59 left in the game, capping an eight-play, 85-yard drive. And
on their next series, the Tigers needed just two plays to go 49
yards as Terrell sidearmed a short pass to Lagomarsino, who ran it
in from 45 yards out.
Lafayette then had a chance to rally when Trey Martell recovered
Rob Toresco's fumble at the Princeton 18, but Artis intercepted
Brad Maurer three plays later.
Maurer completed 12 of 27 for 129 yards, including a 16-yard
scoring strike to Shaun Adair late in the second quarter. However,
the mobile quarterback also threw two interceptions and ran for
just 12 yards.
Terrell led Princeton with 39 rushing yards, giving him 300
yards of total offense. Brian Brigham caught six passes for 72
yards, including a 25-yard touchdown.
