WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Six different Marist football players scored touchdowns as the Red Foxes won at Georgetown, 43-23, in a non-league game Saturday night. It was Marist’s first road victory over a Patriot League school in program history.

Senior quarterback Chuckie Looney (Ocala, Fla.) tied a program record with four touchdown passes. Looney was 17-for-27 for 275 yards passing, and rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown. Junior running back Emmanuel Onakoya (Waldorf, Md.) ran for 105 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown, a 50-yard burst in the third quarter. Senior wide receiver Armani Martin (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) had 114 receiving yards on six receptions.

The Red Foxes rolled up 505 yards of total offense, with 275 through the air and 230 on the ground. They had zero turnovers, and Looney was not sacked. Marist held a 33:22-26:38 edge in time of possession, scored touchdowns on all four trips inside the Red Zone, and went 8-for-14 on third-down conversions.

Senior free safety Nick Kaszei (Brook Park, Ohio) led the defensive effort with 13 tackles, 10 of which were solo, to go along with a forced fumble. Junior safety Connor Mathias (West Lawn, Pa.) had eight tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and two pass break-ups. Senior cornerback Jack Marston (Glen Ellyn, Ill.) finished with eight tackles, an interception and a pass break-up. Senior defensive end Terrence Fede (Nyack, N.Y.) had two sacks, a pass break-up and five tackles. In all, Marist registered seven sacks, three turnovers and nine pass break-ups.

Marston’s interception came on the first play from scrimmage, and gave Marist the ball at its own 43. The Red Foxes scored eight plays later on a six-yard touchdown pass from Looney to Martin. Senior Jesse Signa (Huntington Beach, N.Y.) added a 43-yard field goal to give Marist a 9-0 lead with 7:04 left in the first quarter.

With 1:19 left in the second quarter, a 44-yard field goal by Georgetown kicker Matt MacZura tied the score at nine apiece. But the Red Foxes took a 16-9 lead going into halftime utilizing a six-play, 79-yard drive which culminated in Looney diving over the right pylon for a six-yard rushing touchdown with five seconds left in the half.

Looney’s rushing touchdown started a run of 28 unanswered Marist points over 10:56 of game time. On the opening drive of the second half, Looney tossed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Joe Tralli (Croton, N.Y.). Junior running back Emmanuel Onakoya (Waldorf, Md.) then scored a 50-yard touchdown on Marist’s next play from scrimmage. On its next drive, Marist took a 37-9 lead on a 10-yard pass from Looney to junior wide receiver Matt Tralli (Croton, N.Y.).

Georgetown quarterback Isaiah Kempf responded with a pair of touchdown passes, which cut Marist’s leads to 37-23 with 11:08 to play. But Marist closed out the scoring with a 26-yard touchdown pass from Looney to senior wide receiver Bartley Leneghan (North Royalton, Ohio), which punctuated a 12-play, 81-yard drive.

Kempf finished 35-for-52 for 398 yards. He completed passes to 12 different receivers, with Zack Wilke (10 receptions, 108 yards, one touchdown) being his favorite target.

Both teams are now 1-2.

Following a bye next week, Marist returns to action at Dayton on Saturday, Sept. 28 in its Pioneer Football League opener. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

Notes: This marked the fifth time in program history a Red Fox has thrown four touchdown passes in a game, with Looney becoming the first to accomplish the feat twice. The previous three were Pete Ford (1995 vs. Siena), Kevin Chartrand (1999 vs. La Salle) and Chris Debowski (2008 vs. Bryant). Looney also had four against Davidson last season. ... Martin now has five touchdown receptions this year. ... Prior to tonight, Marist had been scoreless in the first quarter this season, was minus-5 in turnover ratio and had not forced a turnover this year. In the game, Marist scored nine points in the first quarter, was plus-3 in turnover ratio and forced three turnovers. ... Marist is now 4-12 against Georgetown all-time. The teams first met in 1994, as rivals in the MAAC Football League.
