NEWARK, Del. -- Aaron Dykes ran back two kickoff returns for touchdowns -- the first time that has happened in Richmond history -- and the Spiders knocked off Delaware 35-25 on Saturday.
Joe Mancuso rushed for two first-quarter touchdowns to put Richmond (4-4, 3-1 Colonial Athletic Association) up 14-0 and added an insurance touchdown with a 63-yard pass to Keyston Fuller for the game's final points late in the third quarter.
Dykes gathered in a kick at the goal line, broke a couple tackles and raced for the score and a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. He was untouched on an 88-yard return in the second quarter for a 28-10 halftime lead.
Mancuso finished with 280 yards passing and 95 on the ground with Fuller making eight catches for 161 yards. Will Knight had 101 yards rushing for Delaware.
