Ng kicks 45-yard FG in OT as Holy Cross beats Yale 31-28

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Derek Ng booted a 45-yard field goal in overtime as Holy Cross rallied for its first win of the season, a 31-28 victory over Yale, the reigning Ivy League champions, on Saturday afternoon.

Martin Dorsey stretched out in the end zone to haul in a 29-yard scoring strike from Geoff Wade to pull Holy Cross (1-2) within a touchdown with 4:32 left in the game. Spencer Gilliam caught a 30-yard pass as he crossed the goal line to tie the game at 28-28 with 52 seconds remaining.

The Crusaders stopped Yale at the 5 in overtime and Ng’s kick gave first-year coach Bob Chesney his first win.

Wade accounted for 312 total yards, throwing for 242 and two TDS while rushing for 70 yards and another score.
