Stony Brook stops Rhode Island 19-7

KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) Conor Bednarski threw for 117 yards and one touchdown and Donald Liotine rushed for 114 yards to lead Stony Brook to a 19-7 win over Rhode Island on Saturday.

Stony Brook (4-5, 2-5 Colonial Athletic Association) had lost five straight before beating Howard 14-9 last week.

The Seawolves defense was big as Ousmane Camara sacked Rhode Island quarterback Wesley McKoy in the end zone for a safety to start the scoring and Kye Morgan blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone late in the third for a 19-7 lead.

Bednarski hit Cal Daniels on a 7-yard scoring strike and Przemyslaw Popek booted a 38-yard field goal to give Stony Brook a 12-0 lead with 13:01 left in the second quarter. The Rams (1-9, 1-6) scored when McKoy passed to Charlie McKeeman from the 3 to close to 12-7 with 3:39 left in the first half.
