Richmond 62, Delaware 56, OT

Associated Press

NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Josh Vaughan scored on a 13-yard run in the fifth overtime as Richmond beat Delaware 62-56 Saturday in a Colonial Athletic Association game.

After Vaughan's score, Richmond's defense stopped Delaware (8-2, 5-2 CAA) on a fourth-down pass to seal the victory.

The game brought together two of the three teams tied for first place overall in the CAA, and allowed the Spiders (8-2, 6-1 CAA) to clinch the league's South Division title.

Delaware tied the score at 38-38 on a controversial touchdown on the final play of regulation.

Delaware drove 47 yards on six plays in 45 seconds for the tying touchdown. With no time-outs remaining and the ball on the Richmond one-yard line, Delaware quickly lined up and quarterback Joe Flacco ran into the end zone.

Richmond players, believing time had expired, ran onto the field, but after a lengthy dispute the touchdown was allowed and Jon Striefsky's extra-point sent the game into the first overtime.

Delaware had a chance to win the game in the third overtime, but Striefsky, who was 15-of-15 on field goal attempts this season, hit the left upright on a 22-yard kick.

Eric Ward completed 16-of-29 passes for 199 yards with four touchdowns, and ran for 81 yards for Richmond.

Flacco completed 26-of-38 passes for 375 yards with three touchdowns passes and an interception for Delaware. The senior also ran for two touchdowns.
