Colgate handles Georgetown 34-14

Gavin McCarney passed for 248 yards and three touchdowns, and

rushed for 109 yards, to lead Colgate over Georgetown 34-14 in a

Patriot League contest.

Colgate (3-5, 2-0) amassed 309 yards on the ground and limited

Georgetown (1-7, 0-2) to a paltry 54 yards rushing.

Demetrius Russell carried from 1 yard out to give Colgate the

early advantage, but the extra-point attempt failed. The Hoyas took

a short-lived lead later in the first quarter on Kyle Nolan’s

55-yard TD pass to Zack Wilke.

The Raiders answered with three consecutive touchdowns – a

3-yard scoring strike from McCarney to C.J. Stempeck, McCarney’s

12-yard run and a 5-yard TD toss to John Maddaluna.

Georgetown cut into Colgate’s lead with Nolan’s 6-yard TD run,

but the Raiders tacked on a fourth-quarter score as McCarney found

Maddaluna for a 4-yard score, his second TD catch of the day.
