NEW YORK -- Daniel Parr threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores, Leandro DeBrito returned an interception 68 yards for a score and Duquesne beat Wagner 47-30 on Saturday for its third straight win.
Trailing 23-21 in the third quarter, Parr punched it in from the 2-yard line for the go-ahead score after the Dukes' defense stiffened in the second half. Parr, 9 of 15 for 125 yards passing, hit Nehari Crawford on a 5-yard pass for the Dukes' opening score, then scored on a 4-yard run as the Dukes (6-3, 3-1 Northeast Conference) trailed 16-14 in the second quarter.
A.J. Hines, who finished with 238 yards on a career-high 33 carries, scored on a 1-yard run to pull the Dukes to within 23-21 at halftime, and Crawford scored on a 37-yard run on a fourth-quarter reverse play before DeBrito's pick-six. Parr connected with Stew Allen on a 6-yard score with 2:06 to play.
