Jacksonville edges Marist 20-16 via 2 late interceptions

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — Kade Bell scored on a keeper from the 1-yard line and Dallas Jackson’s two interceptions in the final 2:20 sealed a 20-16 win for Jacksonville on Saturday in a Pioneer League opener.

The come-from-behind win for Jacksonville (3-0, 1-0) is the first in the Dolphins’ last three trips to Marist (1-3, 0-1).

The Red Foxes looked like they’d make it three close wins in a row over Jacksonville when Matt Tralli caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Mike White. White, making his second start, threw for 214 yards and two TDs, but was intercepted four times. He hooked up with Juston Christian on an 85-yard play for a 7-3 Marist lead.

Bell completed 32 of 63 passes for 348 yards including a 21-yard TD strike to Andy Jones late in the third quarter to lead 13-9.

Jones caught nine passes for 133 yards.
