WASHINGTON, D.C. — Jermaine Corbett rushed for 130 yards and scored two touchdowns, Perry Shelbred kicked the go-ahead field goal in the fourth quarter, and Stonehill defeated Georgetown 23-20 on Saturday.

The Skyhawks never trailed but it took Shelbred's 30-yard field goal in the middle of the fourth quarter to turn back the Hoyas.

Shelbred's kick capped a 14-play, 61-yard drive that left 5:57 remaining in the game. Georgetown fumbled near midfield on its ensuing drive and although Shelbred missed a 38-yard field goal for Stonehill, the Hoyas did not threaten on their final possession.

Ashur Carraha completed 15 of 24 passes for 175 yards for Stonehill (2-1) and Chris Domercant had five receptions for 94 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown reception from Carraha.

Tyler Knoop went 19-for-27 passing for 195 yards and threw three touchdown passes for the Hoyas (2-1). Joshua Stakley had 105 yards rushing.

Georgetown, which entered with the No. 1 defense in FCS, gave up 175 yards passing and 173 rushing to the Skyhawks after allowing 186 yards per game in two season-opening wins.
