NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Akevious Williams and Cameron Rigby ran for touchdowns on consecutive drives in the second quarter and Bethune-Cookman held on to defeat Norfolk State 21-14 on Saturday for its first victory.

Williams scored on a 5-yard run early in the second quarter and Rigby’s 11-yard run capped a 10-play, 59-yard drive for the Wildcats (1-5, 1-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic).

Larry Brihm Jr. and Jawill Davis hooked up on a 39-yard touchdown for the Wildcats in the first quarter but the Spartans (1-6, 0-4) quickly responded as Greg Hankerson scampered 43 yards to tie it.

Norfolk State scored on Quintreil Chung’s 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter, capping an 81-yard drive. That was set up when Sandy Chapman intercepted Williams on a trick play after B-C reached the red zone.

The Spartans next drive ended on downs near midfield but a Jonathan Cagle interception got the ball back. Norfolk State reached the Wildcats 22 but then lost the ball on downs again.
