Division II East Stroudsburg defeats Wagner 24-14

NEW YORK (AP) — Quarterback Jake Cirillo passed for 138 yards and rushed for a game-high 90 yards and Division II-member East Stroudsburg defeated Wagner 24-14 on Saturday.

ESU scored 21 consecutive points in the first and second quarters and the Warriors (1-0) led 21-7 at halftime.

Trailing 21-14 in the fourth quarter, Wagner drove to the ESU 24 but was backed up by a 3-yard loss on a run followed by a sack, an incomplete pass and a penalty. The Seahawks punted and ESU took six minutes off the clock with a 10-play, 60-yard drive that resulted in a 45-yard field goal by Jordan Walters. Wagner took possession with 1:05 remaining and did not gain a first down.

Wagner’s Christian Alexander-Stevens completed 20 of 34 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown but was sacked four times. Dymitri McKenzie carried 16 times for 87 yards and a touchdown for the Seahawks (0-2).

FCS-member Wagner lost just 24-21 to Connecticut in its opener a week ago.
