EASTON, Pa. (AP) - Tyler West ran for 117 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown and the Lafayette defense held Georgetown in check all afternoon in a 17-3 win on Saturday.

Drew Reed threw for 245 yards and added a rushing touchdown for Lafayette (2-7, 1-3 Patriot League), which held the Hoyas to just 173 yards of offense and 11 first downs.

Lafayette’s Jacob Bissell and Georgetown’s Henry Darmstadter exchanged field goals in the first half for a 3-3 tie at the break. Reed finally broke through with a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:33 left in the 3rd and West put the game out of reach two minutes later with 17-yard score.

Brock Johnson finished 12 of 23 for 107 yards for the Hoyas (3-5, 0-3).

The win snaps a seven-game losing streak for the Leopards, their first win since the opening week against Central Connecticut.
