EASTON, Mass. (AP) — Jermaine Corbett rushed for 146 yards and ended the game with a 5-yard touchdown run in the second overtime as Stonehill defeated Sacred Heart 22-19 on Saturday.

Stonehill’s Perry Shelbred missed a 44-yard field goal with 2:47 remaining in the fourth quarter and neither team mounted a drive in the final minutes of regulation.

Stonehill had the ball first in overtime. After losing 10 yards and facing a kick of 50-plus yards, the Skyhawks did not attempt a field goal and Sacred Heart held on fourth-and-long.

Sacred Heart’s Sam Renzi missed a potential game-ending field goal in the first overtime but connected on his fourth field goal of the game in the second OT. Still, it left Stonehill the opportunity to win with a touchdown.

Jalen Madison had 110 yards rushing for the Pioneers (1-7, 1-4 Northeast Conference).

Neither quarterback completed 40 percent of his passes, but Sacred Heart had 219 yards rushing and Stonehill (3-4, 2-2) had 203 yards on the ground.
