NORFOLK, Va. (AP)—David Sinisi rushed for 216 yards and two touchdowns and completed a scoring pass on his only throw to help Monmouth (N.J.) hold off Old Dominion 31-28 Saturday night.
Sinisi had a career-high 41 carries for the Hawks (2-2), but did not reach his career high of 247 yards set last year against St. Francis (Pa.).
After Old Dominion (3-1) took a 14-0 lead in the first 2:53, Sinisi tied the score with touchdown runs of 8 yards and 1 yard in the first half.
With Monmouth trailing 21-17 in the third quarter, Sinisi threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Giles to give the Hawks the lead for good.
Thomas DeMarco was 16-for-35 for 215 yards for Old Dominion. After a 55-yard touchdown pass to Nick Mayers, Monmouth fumbled the kickoff and DeMarco connected with Carlos Davis for a 7-yard score.
DeMarco also had 42 yards rushing and a 9-yard touchdown.
