WASHINGTON (AP) — Joshua Stakely and Naieem Kearney reach rushed for over 100 yards with a touchdown apiece and Georgetown defeated Sacred Heart 27-10 on Saturday in a game called midway through the fourth quarter because of weather conditions.
The game endured a lengthy delay at halftime because of lightning in the area before being called after another delay with 7:58 remaining.
Stakely rushed for 116 yards on 17 carries and Kearney 111 on 24, the first time the Hoyas (2-0) had two running backs go over 100 yards since 2014.
Tyler Knoop added 148 yards passing including a 45-yard scoring pass to Jimmy Kibble, who was wide open deep down the middle for the game's first points. The Hoyas never trailed, leading 24-10 at halftime.
The Pioneers (0-2) got within 14-10 when Jalen Madison ran 27 yards for a touchdown two plays after a Georgetown fumble. The Hoyas responded with a drive that ended with Kearney's 1-yard score and they added a field goal after Sacred Heart fumbled the ensuing kickoff.
