WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University defense forced four Wagner interceptions, but the Seahawks (3-2, 1-1 NEC) got one when it mattered the most, as Keith Davis returned an interception 80-yards during the second overtime to drop the Hoyas (3-3, 2-1 Patriot League) 22-16 on Saturday afternoon at Multi-Sport Field.
Junior CB Jayah Kaisamba (Fort Worth, Texas/LD Bell) intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble, while senior LB Paul Sant'Ambrogio (Bloomfield, N.J./Seton Hall Prep) and sophomore LB Robert McCabe (Newtown Square, Pa./Malvern Prep) also picked off a pass apiece in the loss.
The Hoyas took control of the game early, as junior QB Scott Darby (Tewksbury, Mass./St. John's Prep) capped a four play, 42 yard drive with a 12 yard run for a touchdown to put the Blue & Gray in front 7-0.
Junior placekicker Brett Weiss (Phoenix, Md./Boys' Latin) added to the lead with a 29 yard field goal with time expiring in the first half to put the Hoyas in front 10-0, as they headed to their respective locker rooms.
Wagner's placekicker David Lopez put the Seahawks on the board for the first time, capping a 12 play 29 yard drive with a 31 yard field goal to bring them within a score, at 10-3. Georgetown would answer behind the leg of Weiss just over three minutes later, as Weiss added a 33 yard field goal to cap a seven play, 40 yard drive to take a 13-3 lead.
The fourth quarter would belong to the Seahawks. Nick Doscher found Justin Matthews on a 15 yard touchdown pass, capping a 15 play 88 yard scoring drive that took 5:07 off the clock. After Stefen Gage intercepted a Darby's deep attempt downfield, Wagner moved the ball to the GU 37 yard line. It was there, where Lopez hit a career long 54 yard field goal, stunning the Hoyas and tying the score with just six seconds left.
Lopez and Weiss traded field goals in the first overtime session. In the second Davis took advantage of the GU miscue returning the interception 80 yards to defeat the Hoyas, 22-16.
Georgetown will remain at home to take on Patriot League rival Bucknell on Saturday, October 16 at 1 p.m. at Multi-Sport Field. The game will be televisied locally on Verizon Fios1. A live video stream will also be available on the Hoyas official athletic web site - www.GUHoyas.com.
