VALPARAISO, Ind. — Ryan Hawk delivered on a 34-yard field goal in overtime to lift Valparaiso to a 23-20 overtime victory over Stetson on Saturday afternoon.

Evan Annis sacked Stetson's Brady Meitz on third down and Meitz threw incomplete on fourth-and-35 on the Hatters' overtime possession.

Jeffrey Jackson punched over from the 1 with 6:11 left in the game to put the Beacons in front, 20-17, but Stetson marched 51 yards in 12 plays to set up Brandon Bush's 41-yard field goal to tie the game with 1:32 left in regulation.

Valparaiso has won back-to-back games for the first time this season after beating Dayton 21-7 in a nonconference game a week ago.

Ryan Mann led the Beacons (3-7, 2-5 Pioneer Football League) with 25 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, but Rowan Keefe was just 7-of-14 passing for 82 yards and was picked off three times by the Hatters.

Meitz was 15-of-28 passing for 203 yards for Stetson (3-7, 1-6), but the Hatters were held to just 263 yards of total offense.
