PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Andrew Shoop’s four touchdown passes led Lafayette to a 37-12 win over Pennsylvania on Saturday night that ended the Football Championship Subdivision’s longest winning streak at eight games.

Two of Shoop’s scoring passes came in the second half, when the Leopards (1-2) outscored the Quakers 21-0.

Shoop, who became the starter after Ryan O’Neil suffered a concussion last week, connected with Mark Ross for a 73-yard third-quarter score that made it 23-12.

Kyle Simmons ran back an interception of a Billy Ragone pass 31 yards to make it 30-12 late in the third quarter and Shoop found Kevin Doty for a 28-yard fourth-quarter score.

Lafayette pulled ahead 13-10 late in the second quarter on Shoop’s 37-yarder to Ross, but the Quakers blocked the extra-point try and Justyn Williams returned it 60 yards for a defensive two-point conversion.

O’Brien’s 48-yard field goal on the half’s final play put Lafayette ahead 16-12.
