Late field goal lifts Brown over Holy Cross 25-24
WORCHESTER, Mass. (AP) Grant Senne kicked a 35-yard field goal with 2:06 left to help Brown beat Holy Cross 25-24 on Saturday.
Senne’s kick capped an 11-play, 63-yard drive – the big play coming on a 14-yard completion from Marcus Fuller to Alexander Jette on third-and-six to the Holy Cross 24.
Peter Pujals hooked up with Jake Wieczorek for a 5-yard touchdown pass early in the third to give Holy Cross to a 24-22 lead. It stayed that way until Senne’s game-winner.
Fuller was 33 of 50 for 412 yards. Jette had 16 catches for 216 yards – both career highs. Troy Doles added nine catches for 112 yards.
Brown (2-2) went up 8-0 in the first on a pair of Senne field goals and a safety. Andrew Coke’s 4-yard rush made it 15-3, but Pujals found Blaise Bell and Brendan Flaherty on short touchdown passes and the Crusaders (2-3) trailed 22-17 at intermission.
