NEW YORK -- Aaron Winchester fired three touchdown passes, including two in the second half, as Central Connecticut State moved to 4-0 in the Northeast Conference with a 27-13 win over Wagner Saturday afternoon.
The Blue Devils were ranked No. 19 in both Football Championship Subdivision polls following their 28-0 shutout of LIU a week ago, matching their highest-ever ranking.
Winchester, the reigning NEC Offensive Player of the Week, found Arthur Gilmore Jr. from 13-yards out in the first quarter to put the Blue Devils in front, 6-3 after Wagner blocked the extra point. CCSU (8-1, 4-0) scored again at the start of the second quarter when Alonzo Mitchell returned a blocked Wagner punt two yards for a touchdown to make it 13-3.
Ryan Yost rallied the Seahawks (1-8, 1-3) by hitting Joshua DelCambre from 20-yards out and Eric Silvester, who hit from 34-yards to open the game, nailed a 21-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to send the game into intermission at 13-13.
Winchester was 13-19 for 213 yards with an interception.
Yost was 18 of 32 for 187 yards and a touchdown to lead Wagner, but also threw three interceptions.
