EASTON, Pa. -- Gunther Johnson had two short touchdown runs in the second quarter and the defense forced four turnovers to give Georgetown a 13-6 win over Lafayette on Saturday.
An interception by Leon Agee gave the Hoyas (3-4, 2-0 Patriot League) a short field and Johnson's 6-yard run capped a seven-play, 34-yard drive for a 6-0 lead. The defense then forced a three-and-out and Johnson capped a 10-play, 50-yard drive with a 1-yard plunge.
The Leopards (1-5, 0-2) got on the board with a field goal in the closing seconds of the half and then added a second field goal in the last minute of the game.
Skyler Springs and Ahmad Wilson also had picks for Georgetown, which only had nine first downs and 168 yards of offense. The teams were a combined 8 of 31 on third down and Lafayette failed on two fourth downs.
