Sacred Heart Pioneers (3-3)


Duke rallies Sacred Heart, Pioneers hold on to beat CCSU

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) Kevin Duke threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns as Sacred Heart rallied in the last half and then survived a late Central Connecticut State field goal attempt for a 28-25 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Trailing 17-7 at the break, Sacred Heart (4-3, 2-0 Northeast Conference) which had dropped three games in a row, scored three straight touchdowns to go up 28-17 early in the final quarter. The Blue Devils answered when Jacob Dolegala hit Arthur Gilmore on a 15-yard touchdown pass with 5:26 remaining. The same two hooked up for the 2-point conversion to close within a field goal.

The CCSU defense forced a punt and Dolegala engineered a 14-play, 56-yard drive to Sacred Heart's 27 where Francis Cole sailed a 44-yard field goal attempt wide left in the final seconds.
