Jim Corcoran of Georgetown, continuing his fine play, kicked two field goals and made a key interception in the last four minutes yesterday to give the Hoyas an unexpectedly tough 20-14 win over visiting St. John's of New York.

With the game tied at 14, the Hoyas mounted a fourth-quarter drive on their own 23, moving in 14 plays to the Redmen one, where Corcoran kicked an 18-yard field goal.

St. John's got the ball with about three minutes remaining but Corcoran intercepted Joe Kaso's pass at the Redmen 34.

He ran it back seven yards to the St. John's 27 and four plays later, connected on a 34-yard field goal. The interception was his eighth of the year, a school record.

The Hoyas led, 14-0, early in the second quarter on the strength of their running game, which totaled 237 yards.

Running back John Federico had 123 yards and one touchdown for the Hoyas.

But St. John's tied the game before the half on Kaso touchdown passes of 31 yards to Charles Davis and six yards to Tony Bopp.

The Hoyas are 5-1, the Redmen 2-5-1.
