WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Mike White went 29 of 47 for 236 yards with a touchdown and Marist held off Georgetown 14-12 on Saturday.

With just under 5 minutes to play, Tim Barnes found Michael Dereus from 44 yard out, but the two-point conversion failed and Georgetown's final drive stalled at its own 44 as time expired.
Barnes finished 21 of 40 for 217 yards for the Hoyas (1-1), while Dereus had four catches for 72 yards. Marist limited Georgetown to 45 yards rushing.
Juston Christian led Marist with seven catches for 88 yards.
