Lenhart’s 3 rushing TDs carry Columbia past Georgetown 35-24


NEW YORK (AP) — Quarterback Ty Lenhart ran for three of Columbia’s four rushing touchdowns and Will Allen returned a kickoff 92 yards for a score as the Lions turned back Georgetown 35-24 in nonconference play. Ty’son Edwards and Lenhart had short TD runs in the first quarter to put Columbia (2-0) up 14-0. The Hoyas (1-2) pulled within 14-7 early in the second quarter on Joshua Stakely’s 2-yard TD run, but Allen quickly pushed the Lions’ lead back to 14 when he returned the ensuing kickoff for a score. Pierce Holley scored on a 6-yard run to cap a nine-play, 83-yard drive to pull Georgetown within seven and Conor Hunt added a 42-yard field goal to get the Hoyas within 21-17 at halftime. The Lions finally put Georgetown away when Lenhart scored his third TD _ an 8-yard run _ with 2:36 left to play.
