Field goal, block preserves Lafayette win over Georgetown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ah-Shaun Davis threw for 203 yards and a touchdown and Micah Pettit’s 28-yard field with 5:31 remaining lifted Lafayette past Georgetown 24-23 on Saturday.

The Leopards (3-5, 2-1 Patriot League) made the lead hold up when the special teams came up with a blocked field-goal attempt on Conor Hunt from 48-yards with seven seconds left.
