Washington, D.C. - Brown running back Nick Hartigan ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Bears to a 34-3 win over Georgetown in front of a sellout crowd of 3,500 at the opening of the Multi-Sport Field on the Hilltop.
The Hoyas fall to 1-2 overall, while Brown improved to 1-0 in its season opener.
The Bears led by only seven points, 10-3, at halftime, but scored 14 points in the third quarter and 10 more in the fourth, accumulating 248 yards in the second half.
Brown quarterback Joe DiGiacomo threw a 39-yard scoring pass to Jarret Schreck on the opening drive of the second half, building the lead to 17-3. A fumble on the ensuing kickoff gave the Bears the ball on the Georgetown 27-yard line and Akin Oyalowo's one-yard run capped a five-play drive, giving Brown a 24-3 lead.
Steve Morgan kicked a 30-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter and a Hartigan five-yard touchdown with 7:46 left to play capped the scoring.
The Hoyas moved the ball well in the first half, out-gaining the Bears, 203 to 165, with junior quarterback Nick Cangelosi carrying the ball 12 times for 85 yards. Brown took a 3-0 lead on a Morgan 27-yard field goal with 10:26 left in the first quarter and the lead grew to 10-0 when Hartigan ran one in from 10 yards out.
Georgetown's best chance of the first half came late in the second quarter when Cangelosi picked up 34 yards on a run down the near sideline before being tackled at the one-yard line. The Hoyas, however, were not able to push a score across.
The Hoya defense, which was strong throughout the day, forced Brown to punt after three plays on the next possession and drove 23 yards - highlighted by a Cangelosi 19-yard pass to Kyle Van Fleet - to the 22, where Brad Scoffern kicked a 39-yard field goal with one second left.
Cangelosi finished the day completing 6-of-11 passes for 60yards and ran the ball 12 times for 85 yards. Mike Ononibaku led the defensive unit with 10 tackles (four solo) and one tackle for loss, while Jason Carter had nine tackles (seven assists), one tackle for loss and one pass breakup.
Georgetown returns to action next weekend, playing at Stony Brook. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m.
