WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Jeffrey Kordenbrock’s career-best 43-yard field goal on the last play of the game gave Lafayette its first victory of the season, a 10-7 win over Holy Cross on Saturday.

Kordenbrock, a freshman, came in 2 for 4 on field goals with his longest at 34 yards, but his game-winner had plenty of distance to give coach John Garrett his first collegiate win.

The kick was set up when the Crusaders’ Diquan Walker was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 from the Holy Cross 33. The Leopards (1-4, 1-0 Patriot League) gained 7 yards on three running plays before Kordenbrock came on.

Lafayette was outgained 319-220 with minus-6 yards rushing and Sean O’Malley was picked off three times, but he still threw for 226 yards, including a 32-yard screen pass for the Leopards’ only score with nine seconds left in the third to tie it at 7.

The lone score for Holy Cross (2-3, 1-1) came on Miles Alexander’s 8-yard run in the second quarter.
