Whiz kid Stanzani propels Long Island past Sacred Heart
FAIRFIELD, CONN. (AP) Luca Stanzani threw four touchdowns and ran for another and Long Island ended its season holding off Sacred Heart 37-34 on Saturday.
Long Island built a 37-10 lead when Stanzani ran it from 13 yards out with 3:32 left in the third quarter.
Stanzani, a true freshman from Clearwater, Florida, helped boost the Sharks' (4-7, 4-3) fortunes when he took over as the starting quarterback a month ago and ignited a four-game winning streak.
Malik Grant finished with a pair of rushing touchdowns and 110 yards on the ground for the Pioneers (5-6, 3-4).
