William &, Mary 21, Maine 20

ORONO, Maine (AP) -- Jake Phillips passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns, engineering two second-half scoring drives that carried William & Mary to a 21-20 victory over Maine on Saturday.

Phillips completed two scoring passes to Cameron Dohse, who made seven receptions for 123 yards. The first was a 31-yarder that put the Tribe (4-3) on the scoreboard late in the second quarter to cut the deficit to 14-7. The second was a 33-yarder off a ball tipped by a defender that finished off an 89-yard march and made it 14-14 late in the third quarter.

The Tribe took the lead for good on Tony Viola's 3-yard run that capped a 90-yard drive early in the fourth quarter.

Maine (1-5) countered with Bobby Donnelly field goals of 32 and 34 yards, the second with 3:53 to play, but the Black Bears were unable to keep William & Mary from running out the clock.

Maine's Jhamal Fluellen rushed for a career-best 200 yards on 31 carries, while Adam Farkes had first-half scoring tosses of 20 and 31 yards to Landis Williams.

Josh Rutter paced the Tribe's defense with 10 tackles, while John Wormuth's 14 tackles led the Black Bears.
