HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Justin Thorpe’s 9-yard touchdown run with 1:24 to play vaulted James Madison to a 13-10 win over Towson in Colonial Athletic Association action Saturday.

Thorpe’s game-winner capped a riveting fourth quarter, which began when Towson (2-3, 1-1) quarterback Grant Enders orchestrated a 14-play, 92-yard scoring drive. Enders was 6-of-6 passing for 61 yards on the drive, and ran in a go-ahead, 7-yard touchdown with 3:21 left.

The Dukes (4-1, 2-0) began the ensuing drive at their own 21, and drove 79 yards in eight plays before Thorpe ran in what proved the game-winner. Thorpe was 6-of-6 passing for 60 yards on the drive, and finished the game 11 of 19 for 116 yards.

Thorpe, in his fifth year in the program, was granted a sixth season of eligibility by the NCAA earlier this week after missing 2008 and 2010 with injuries.

Towson’s Terrance West ran 28 times for 112 yards.
