Whiz kid Stanzani propels Long Island past Sacred Heart

FAIRFIELD, CONN. (AP) Luca Stanzani threw four touchdowns and ran for another and Long Island ended its season holding off Sacred Heart 37-34 on Saturday.

Long Island built a 37-10 lead when Stanzani ran it from 13 yards out with 3:32 left in the third quarter.

Stanzani, a true freshman from Clearwater, Florida, helped boost the Sharks' (4-7, 4-3) fortunes when he took over as the starting quarterback a month ago and ignited a four-game winning streak.
