Duquesne 38, La Salle 0

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Scott Knapp threw for 223 yards and four touchdowns - all in the first half - to lead Duquesne to a 38-0 drubbing of La Salle on Saturday night.

Duquesne (7-3, 2-1 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on Knapp's first two touchdown passes and led 35-0 at halftime before easing to victory.

The Dukes held La Salle (2-7, 0-2) to minus-13 yards rushing and just 113 total yards while forcing six turnovers - including an interception returned 98 yards for a touchdown by Chris Hough in the second quarter. A little over a minute later, another interception by Kyle Postell set up Knapp's fourth touchdown pass.

Postell also picked off another pass in the fourth and blocked a field goal attempt in the third quarter to preserve the shutout.

Duquesne harassed La Salle quarterback Chris Hanson all night, sacking him three times and forcing four interceptions.

The Explorers forced four turnovers of their own and got deep in Duquesne territory three times without coming away with points.

Duquesne's Conrad Carter had just two catches for 72 yards, but both went for touchdowns. Bruce Hocker added six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown for the Dukes.

Mark Troyan kicked a 25-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for Duquesne. Travis Decker led the Dukes with eight tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
