POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — Austin Day found Hunter Cobb with a 10-yard pass in the final 10 seconds of the third quarter as Marist broke a scoreless tie against Drake, 7-0, on Saturday.

Teddy Wright’s third-down sack of Drake’s Ian Corwin helped Marist (4-4, 4-2 Pioneer Football League) preserve the shutout, a first at Tenney Field since 2013 against Stetson (27-0).

One play after the sack, a Drake 49-yard field goal attempt went awry when the kick caromed off the helmet of a Drake lineman and sling-shotted all the way back to the Bulldogs 30-yard line, where it was recovered by Marist’s Mike Arrington.

A Drake (2-6, 1-4) goal-line stand got the ball back with no timeouts at 2:29 of the fourth, but the Red Foxes made a stand of their own and forced a turnover on downs in four plays to end the game in victory formation.

Day completed 21 of 28 passes for 186 yards, spreading the ball around to nine receivers.

Corwin went 13-for-27 passing for 144 yards with an interception. The Bulldogs, who had not played in two weeks after a bye and a COVID-caused cancellation, gained 144 yards rushing.

The game saw 14 punts, eight by Drake, and each team missed two field goals.
