MAPLEWOOD, NJ -- Sophomore back Quinn Devlin's touchdown in overtime gave Livingston a 26-20 victory over Columbia Friday night at Underhill Field.
Devlin scored on a 6-yard run on third-and-goal to cap Livingston's only possession of overtime, after the Lancers had held Columbia scoreless on the Cougars' first series of OT, which ended with Luke Nardone blocking a Cougar field goal attempt.
Devlin's 35-yard TD run with 3:07 left in the fourth quarter tied the game, 20-20, but Livingston missed the extra point. Devlin finished with 160 yards on 24 carries.
The Lancers (3-6) had a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. David Cotugno threw a 12-yard TD pass to Nardone with 2:21 left in the first quarter and Spencer Feldman kicked the PAT to open the scoring. After Columbia tied it, 7-7, early in the second period, Cotugno ran for a TD and Feldman converted the extra point kick for a 14-7 lead.
Columbia (5-4) struck for two TD passes to take a 20-14 lead by halftime.
Cotugno passed for 172 yards and rushed for 133. Nardone caught six passes for 94 yards, intercepted a pass and blocked the one field goal attempt.
