UNH Football Defeats Northeastern, 33-31

BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) -- Dan Curran ran for two touchdowns to lead New Hampshire over Northeastern 33-31 Saturday.

Ryan Day of New Hampshire (3-3, 1-3 Atlantic 10) ran for one touchdown and passed for another, completing 19 of 28 passes for 171 yards. Dan Krieder rushed for 184 yards on 18 runs.

Northeastern (1-5, 0-3) was led by quarterback Fred Vallett, who ran in one touchdown and threw for another in going 12-for-23 for 152 yards.

Curran's 7-yard run gave New Hampshire a 30-14 lead midway in the third period before a 23-yard field goal by Joe Connolly and a 4-yard touchdown run by Tim Gale, his second TD of the game, brought the Huskies within range, 30-24, with 8:07 left in the final quarter. But Peter Carbonara's 27-yard field goal with 3:59 left provided the winning margin.

The Wildcats took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter on Curran's first TD run, a 1-yarder, and Carbonara's 36-yard field goal. They went on to take a 23-14 lead into the break.

By catching eight passes for 118 yards, Dave Klemic moved into second place for Northeastern in career receptions. The junior has 134 catches, 19 behind Dan Ross.
