DOVER, Del. (AP) — Christian Carter threw for one touchdown and passed for another, Corey Resendes kicked three second-half field goals and Merrimack defeated Delaware State 30-21 on Saturday.
The win marks Merrimack’s first of the season against an FCS opponent in its inaugural FCS campaign. The Warriors picked up their second-ever win against an FCS foe, joining the 2013 team that beat Wagner.
The Warriors (3-4) scored the game’s final 16 points on a 42-yard run by Jamari Venter followed by Resendes’ three field goals.
Delaware State (1-6) did not score in the second half and the Hornets’ only second-half drive into Merrimack territory ended in a lost fumble.
Carter passed for 194 yards and ran for 73. Venter finished with 69 yards rushing. The Warrior defense had four sacks.
