(Courtesy William & Mary Athletics)

HAMPTON, Va. The William & Mary football team concluded its road slate with an exciting 31-10 victory at Hampton on Saturday afternoon.
 
Although W&M (6-4, 4-3) trailed 10-7 entering the fourth quarter, the Tribe scored 24 points in the final 12:56, including three touchdowns in the closing 6:53, to secure the impressive conference road victory.
 
The triumph ensured the program a winning record for the third consecutive season.
 
After a 40-yard field goal by Caden Bonoffski tied the game at 10-10 with 12:56 remaining, quarterback Tyler Hughes provided the go-ahead score when he connected on a 76-yard touchdown strike to wideout JT Mayo with 6:53 to play. The score came just one play after linebacker Quinn Osborne intercepted a screen pass in the red zone to deny the Pirates (5-5, 3-4) a scoring opportunity.

W&M added to its lead on HU’s next play from scrimmage when linebacker Kevin Jarrell intercepted a pass that bounced off a Pirate wide receiver’s leg and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown.

Shortly after another interception, this time by safety David Roulley off a ball tipped by Jaedon Joyner near midfield, W&M tacked on its final touchdown with a 6-yard run by Hughes.
 
In addition to limiting HU to just 10 points, W&M’s defense forced five turnovers (four interceptions, one fumble).

Running back Mattijs Lasore rushed for a team-best 42 yards on six carries (7.0 yards per carry).
 
In addition to his 40-yard pick-six, Jarrell totaled a team-high 10 tackles with two forced fumbles.
 
Defensive end Nate Lynn also came up big with nine tackles and a fumble recovery, while linebacker John Pius posted six tackles and 2.0 TFL.
