NEW YORK (AP) Christian Alexander-Stevens ran for two touchdowns and passed for another as Wagner beat Long Island 24-14 on Saturday for the Seahawks' first victory this season.
Alexander-Stevens capped two second-quarter drives with short runs and Eric Silvester added a 48-yard field goal at the end of the first half for a 24-7 lead. Alexander-Stevens passed 6 yards to Joshua DeCambre for the game's first score.
Jerome Brooks III blocked Silvester's 41-yard field-goal attempt and the ball bounded into the arms of Grant Ibeh who returned it 67 yards for a TD with 8:39 left in the game and cut the lead to 10.
The other Sharks score came on Clay Beathard's 38-yard pass to Jake Bofshever to tie the game at 7.
Wagner (1-4, 1-0) and Northeast Conference newcomer LIU (0-3, 0-2) met for the first time in 22 years.
