DOVER, Del. (AP) - Keenan Black threw two touchdown passes, and Delaware State forced two fourth-quarter turnovers and held on to beat South Carolina State 17-14 on Saturday for its first win of the season.

Black tossed a 36-yard touchdown pass to Taronn Selby and a 9-yarder to Fatu Sua-Godinet as the Hornets (1-6, 1-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead.

Darius Hammonds’ 54-yard punt return in the second quarter set up Trey Samuel’s 48-yard touchdown run a play later. Dewann Ford threw an 8-yard TD-pass to Quan Caldwell to tie it at 14 early in the fourth quarter.

Wisdom Nzidee’s 29-yard field goal with about ten minutes left capped the scoring.

Devin Smith and Devin Adams each picked off a Ford pass in South Carolina State (2-5, 1-4) territory in the fourth quarter.
