Hampton defeats Delaware State, 30-7
Jorrian Washington bolted through the line for a 79-yard
touchdown run early in the third quarter – the breakaway run also
breaking open a close game as Hampton defeated Delaware State 30-7
With Hampton (3-5, 3-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic) leading only 10-7
at the half, the Pirates forced a Delaware State (3-5, 3-2) punt on
the opening drive of the third quarter. One play and 13 seconds
later, the rout was on as Washington rushed for more than half of
his game-high 127 yards with the TD run.
The Pirate attack was balanced, with six players rushing the
ball. Bryan Bailey completed 9 of 16 passes for 112 yards, and in
the fourth quarter hit Twarn Mixson on a 75-yard scoring play.
Anthony Prevost added three field goals.
Delaware State tried to rally after Washington’s long TD run but
Cory Murphy was intercepted – one of two picks.
