Roussan Powell’s 3-yard run with 28 seconds to play in the half boosted the visitors’ lead to 14-3.
Jermaine Creighton of St. John’s scored on a 1-yard run at 13:34 of the third quarter, but Soto’s conversion attempt was blocked and run back for two points by Bill Sepich, giving the Dukes a 16-9 advantage.
Joe Rosato’s 45-yard run at 4:17 boosted the advantage to 23-9 and Hatcher followed with two fourth-quarter scoring runs.
