ORONO, Maine (AP) – Joe Mancuso ran for two touchdowns and his 66-yard scoring pass to Keyston Fuller gave Richmond the lead for good in a 24-17 win over Maine on Saturday.
The Black Bears led 10-7 at halftime to set up the decisive third quarter. Mancuso’s 1-yard TD plunge capped a 7-play, 79-yard drive with 6:22 left in the third.

Richmond (3-3, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association) pinned Maine at its own 1-yard line after a 68-yard punt by Jake Larson. Maine’s four-play, 99-yard drive took a little more than two minutes.
