NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) _ Georgetown got two touchdowns and 117 rushing yards from Steve Iorio to remain unbeaten in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with a 33-2 victory Saturday over Iona.
Bill Ward completed 17 of 25 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown for the Hoyas (5-1, 5-0 MAAC), who kept the Gaels (0-6, 0-4) winless. Only a safety, when Matt D'Occhio tackled Josh Walz in the end zone with 2:23 remaining, averted a shutout.
Iorio, who carried the ball 21 times, scored on runs of 17 and 7 yards as the Hoyas amassed 457 in total offense to 66 for the Gaels.
Joe Todisco had a 20-yard TD run, and Acquil Stinson scored from a yard out for Georgetown. Ward's touchdown pass was a 9-yarder to Scott Paltos.
