- Staff, wire reports

A 14-point lead eluded Christophe­r Newport on Saturday as the Captains lost 27-24 in overtime at Dickinson.

The good news for the Captains (3-2): It was a non-conference game, and they are still 1-0 in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, with a win over four-time defending champion Salisbury.

Dickinson’s Red Devils improved to 4-1 when Presley Egbers found Bobby Markey in the back of the end zone with a game-ending 14-yard touchdown pass in Carlisle, Pennsylvan­ia. It was Egbers’ third TD throw.

CNU went ahead 14-0 on a pair of touchdowns from Tallwood High graduate Gunner White. The sophomore ran for a 16-yard touchdown with 1:08 left in the first quarter, then caught a 29-yard throw from Connor Barry with 6:10 left in the second quarter.

Dickinson answered to tie the game at 14 and then at 21.

Dickinson won the toss and elected to play defense first. CNU earned one first down but was forced to a fourth-and-5 at the 6, and Ryan Castle kicked a 23-yard field goal for a 24-21 lead.

Egbers finished 16 of 28 for 221 yards, capped by his winning pass.

For CNU, White had 102 yards on 21 carries and three catches for 37 yards. Colin Hart had five catches for 79 yards.
