POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Will Bardo threw two touchdown passes to help Dayton build a 21-7 halftime lead, and the Flyers held on for a 21-17 victory over Marist Saturday.
Dayton (6-5, 5-3 Pioneer Football League) has now won five of its last six games after starting 1-4. The Flyers scored first on Dan Jacob's 18-yard touchdown run. Bardo then threw his first touchdown pass, a 15-yarder to Ross Smith for a 14-0 first-quarter lead.
Max Jacques of Marist (3-6, 2-4) answered with a 76-yard touchdown run, but Bardo's second scoring pass, a 15-yarder to Ross Smith, made it 21-7 at halftime.
