WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Joe Carbone threw for 182 yards and a touchdown and Stacey Bedell ran for 104 yards and a score and Stony Brook withstood William & Mary’s fourth-quarter rally for a 21-18 win Saturday night.
Stony Brook’s defense thwarted the Tribe’s last two possessions of the game when Darin Peart intercepted Tommy McKee.
On the game’s final play, with William & Mary at the Seawolves’ 17-yard line and eight seconds to play, Garrett Best was called for a false-start penalty, which resulted in a 10-second runoff to end the game.
Carbone’s 61-yard touchdown pass to Donald Liotine gave Stony Brook (4-1, 3-0 Colonial Athletic Association) a 21-0 lead with 8:16 to play in the third quarter.
After a late third-quarter field goal, Nate Evans scored a 3-yard run to close William & Mary’s (2-2, 0-1) deficit to 21-10 early in the fourth quarter.
Stony Brook was held to a three-and-out, and on the following drive, McKee threw a 21-yard score to Chris Conlan, and the 2-point conversion made for the final margin.
McKee threw for 212 yards and was intercepted twice.
