HAMPTON, Va. (AP)—After Antwon Chisholm’s second rushing touchdown and his two-point conversion catch gave Hampton a fourth-quarter lead, Jeremi Schwartz scored on a 1-yard run in overtime—his only carry of the game—to beat North Carolina Central 30-27 Saturday.

Tied 10-all at halftime, Hampton (4-3, 2-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) led 16-10 entering the fourth quarter before Idreis Augustus’ 8-yard touchdown run put the Eagles (1-6, 0-4) ahead 17-16.

That’s when Chisholm, who rushed for 81 yards, scored his second short touchdown. His 1-yarder and Travis Champion’s 2-point conversion pass to Chisholm gave the Pirates a 24-17 lead.

But with 1:54 left in regulation, North Carolina Central struck late. Jonathan Nicely caught his second touchdown pass from Michael Johnson, a 36-yarder that tied the game at 24-24.

Oleg Parent’s 28-yard field goal put the Eagles ahead 27-24 in overtime, before Schwartz scored from the 1 to win it for Hampton.
