NEW YORK (AP) — Makai Jackson caught 11 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff 79 yards for a score to spark St. Francis (PA) to its first win, holding winless Wagner scoreless over the final three quarters to post a 27-7 win on Saturday.
Wagner scored first when Nick Kargman threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Naiem Simmons with :33 left in the first quarter, but the Red Flash answered when Jackson returned the kickoff to tie the score.

Alex Schmoke kicked two 21-yard field goals in the second half and Jackson pulled in a 16-yard touchdown pass from Cole Doyle in the third quarter.
Doyle was 12-of-18 passing for 122 yards while the Red Flash ground out 189 yards rushing on 41 carries.
Kargan finished 10-of-22 passing for 113 yards while the Seahawks managed just 98 yards on 41 carries.
