Dukes drop fourth straight

Jonathan Grimes ran for a career-high 158 yards, and R.J. Archer threw for two touchdowns to lead William & Mary to a 24-3 Colonial Athletic Association football win over James Madison Saturday.

Grimes, who ran 20 times, set up the Tribe’s first touchdown with a season-long 61-yard run and scored on a nine-yard run in the final quarter. Archer had scoring passes of nine and 18 yards and completed 15 of 22 passes for 127 yards.

William & Mary improved to 6-1 overall and to 3-1 in the CAA with the win. The Tribe won for the first time in the last six series games with JMU and for the first time in the last five series meetings on its field.

JMU fell to 2-5 overall and to 0-4 in the CAA.

The Dukes have lost four straight, the last three to teams ranked in the top 10 of the I-AA national rankings.
