Brad Scoffern kicked a 25-yard field goal in overtime and Georgetown beat Duquesne, 10-7, yesterday at Multi-Sport Field.
Marcus Slayton ran 29 times for 115 yards and a touchdown for the Hoyas (3-3), who had lost three of four. Georgetown prevailed in a nonconference game played in a steady downpour, winning its second overtime game of the season.
Duquesne (2-3), which lost its third straight game, wasted a chance to score after winning the coin toss and getting the first possession of overtime. But on fourth down of the first series, Mark Troyan's 40-yard field goal attempt was wide right and short.
Georgetown took possession and moved the ball to the 8-yard line on six plays, four of them carries by Slayton, who notched his fifth career 100-yard game.
Scoffern, who missed a 52-yarder as regulation expired, sailed a rising line drive from the left hash for the game-winner.
Slayton put Georgetown ahead 7-0 early in the second quarter after a short punt and a 15-yard return by Brian Tandy put the Hoyas at the Duquesne 21. Slayton ran for four and 11 yards on the next two plays before slamming off tackle for a six-yard touchdown.
The Dukes tied the game with 11 minutes 57 seconds left in regulation on a nine-play, 56-yard drive. Scott Knapp found Dan Spriggs on an inside slant pattern for a 10-yard scoring pass.
Georgetown quarterback Nick Cangelosi was 4 of 13 for eight yards, the third-fewest passing yards in school history.
