HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- David McCarty scored on a 7-yard run to give Albany a 22-16 overtime victory over Hofstra on Saturday night.

McCarty scored after Albany blocked Brian Hanly's 30-yard field goal attempt on the first possession of overtime.

McCarty finished with 178 yards on 27 carries for the Great Danes (1-1), and Vinny Esposito completed 10 of 22 passes for 102 yards and had two 1-yard scoring runs.

Hofstra (0-2) tied it at 16 on Brock Jackolski's 3-yard with 10:34 left.

Cory Christopher was 27-of-37 for 272 yards and a touchdown for the Pride. Anthony Nelson had nine catches for 85 yards, and Edward Benjamin ran for 67 yards on 17 carries.

Hofstra took a 9-7 lead on Hanly's 25-yard field goal with 1:24 to play in the second quarter, but Albany tied on a safety midway through the third and took a 16-9 lead on Esposito's second TD run with 2:12 left in the third.

Albany had lost its previous nine games against Hofstra.
