Fordham rallies to beat Lafayette 14-10Saturday, Oct 23, 2010
BRONX, N.Y. (AP)—Darryl Whiting scored on a 7-yard run with 47 seconds left Saturday to give Fordham a 14-10 win over Lafayette.
Whiting’s touchdown capped a seven-play, 80-yard drive that took just 1:41. Ryan Higgins completed passes for 53 yards on the first four plays, and Whiting carried on the next three. A 19-yard run gave Fordham (3-5) a first-and-goal at the Lafayette 8. A false start penalty moved the Rams back to the 13, but Whiting’s 6- and 7-yard runs completed the drive.
Michael Martin intercepted a pass with 22 seconds left to clinch the win.
Whiting finished with 108 yards on 29 carries, and Higgins completed 19 of 32 passes for 185 yards.
A safety and two field goals by Patrick Murray gave Fordham an 8-0 lead, but Lafayette (1-6) came back on a 48-yard touchdown pass from Ryan O’Neil to Mark Layton, and a field goal by Davis Rodriguez.
