KINGSTON, R.I. — Andre Blackett stuffed Ty Son Lawton onfourth-and-1 from the 2-yard line to secure Rhode Island’s first-ever win over Stony Brook, 27-20, in overtime on Saturday.

The Rams (4-0, 2-0) broke a seven-game skid against the Seawolves (1-4, 0-2) after seven losses since joining the Colonial Athletic Association.

Rhode Island, ranked 23rd in the FCS coaches’ poll, missed field goals of 45 and 51 yards on their last two possessions of regulation, the second coming on the final play.

The Rams got the ball first in overtime, and after a 2-yard loss, Kasim Hill hit Caleb Warren over the middle for a touchdown.

Hill was 21-for-37 for 226 yards and he added 66 yards on the ground with a touchdown.

The TD capped a 94-yard drive that gave the Rams a 20-13 lead early in the fourth quarter. Justin Antrum ran for 104 yards and a score.

Seawolves quarterback Tyquell Fields threw for 101 yards but ran for a pair of scores, the second one with 7:40 to play that tied the game. Lawton rushed 28 times for 154 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
