Elliott's 5 TDs passing lead Merrimack past winless LIU
OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. (AP) Westin Elliott completed 31 of 38 passes for 299 yards and five touchdowns to help Merrimack beat Long Island University 43-5 on Saturday.
Four of Elliott's touchdowns were 15 yards or fewer. His 26-yarder to Jamari Venter gave Merrimack a 21-2 lead with 41 seconds left before halftime.
Venter also carried it 15 times for 50 yards for Merrimack (4-3 1-2 Northeast Conference). Tyler Roberts caught nine passes for 98 yards and two scores. Jacari Carter added eight grabs for 48 yards and a TD.
Merrimack was successful on three of four two-point conversion attempts, after getting a PAT blocked in the second quarter.
Long Island (0-5, 0-2) was held to 183 yards and 11 first downs. The Sharks fumbled it on their opening possession and four plays later, Elliott connected with Pat Conroy for a 10-yard TD on fourth down.
Long Island's second fumble led to Maurice Nelson's 9-yard touchdown reception for a 37-5 lead.
