Delaware holds on to beat Rhode Island 24-17

Oct 16, 2010 - 11:50 PM NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Andrew Pierce ran for 131 yards and two touchdowns for Delaware in a 24-17 win over Rhode Island in Colonial Athletic Association play on Saturday.

The Fightin' Blue Hens (7-0, 4-0) grabbed the lead after a 15-yard touchdown run from Pierce on their first possession of the game and a 27-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Paul Worrilow on the ensuing Rhode Island drive.

Mike Perry kicked a 29-yard field early in the second quarter to extend Delaware's lead to 17-0.

The Rams (2-4, 1-2) scored on a 1-yard touchdown run by Steve Probst and a 75-yard kickoff return by Travis Hurd before the end of the second quarter to cut Delaware's lead at halftime to 24-14.

The only points of the second half came on a 36-yard field goal by Rhode Island kicker Louis Feinstein.

The 7-0 start by Delaware is the school's best since its 2003 Division I-AA national championship season.
