HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) _ Halfback Kenny Sims broke a scoreless tie with a 22-yard scoring run in the third quarter and James Madison went on to a 21-0 victory over Northeastern’s Huskies on Saturday.
Sims’ touchdown run with 5:21 left in the period was set up by James Madison linebacker Roger Waters’ interception of a Dan Daponde pass at the Northeastern 25-yard line.
James Madison (3-2) also got a 6-yard touchdown run from halfback Leon Taylor with 24 seconds left in the third and a 1-yard scoring run from fullback Joe Sparksman with 2:07 to play.

The Huskies were held to 149 total yards, 111 of which came on the ground.
