Associated Press

EASTON, Pa. -- Lafayette's Rob Curley threw three touchdown passes as the Leopards withstood a late rally to top Penn 24-17 on Saturday night.

Curley tossed a 10-yard scoring pass to Michael Conte in the first quarter and added two touchdown passes to Shaun Adair in the second quarter as Lafayette (3-0) sprinted out to a 24-0 lead at halftime.

But Penn (0-2) got on the board with a 42-yard touchdown pass from Robert Irvin to Brad Blackmon and added a field goal later in the third quarter to cut Lafayette's lead to 24-10.

In the fourth, Mike DiMaggio scored on a 6-yard run with 3:27 left. Penn got the ball back with 1:48 left deep in its own territory and drove to the Lafayette 46, but Irvin threw four straight incomplete passes and the Quakers turned the ball over on downs.

Curley was 12-for-22 for 163 yards with one interception for the Leopards and Irvin was 19-for-37 for 233 yards and one touchdown and one interception.
