PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Duquesne rallied in the fourth quarter with a touchdown run, a two-point conversion pass and a 20-yard field goal to beat St. Francis Pa. 24-21 Saturday in a Northeast Conference game.

Charlie Leventry's 20-yard field goal with 36 seconds left lifted the Dukes (4-1, 2-0 NEC) to their fourth straight victory. Leventry's third field goal of the game came after Larry McCoy and Sean Patterson helped tie the game at 21-all.

McCoy, who ran for 122 yards to surpass the 4,000-yard rushing mark for his career, scored his second touchdown on a 3-yard run. Then Patterson hit Kyle Shuman on a two-point conversion pass to tie it at 21-21. Keion Wade ran for 82 yards and all three touchdowns for the Red Flash (2-3, 1-1).

After Duquesne forced a punt, Patterson led the Dukes on the decisive drive, culminating in Leventry's field goal.

McCoy now has 4,099 career yards rushing.
