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

on Saturday.

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.
