William & Mary holds off Penn 34-28

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Brent Caprio threw two touchdowns and Tre McBride matched a career high with seven receptions as William & Mary held off Penn 34-28 on Saturday.

Caprio, William & Mary's third different starting quarterback this season, finished with 220 yards on 18-of-28 passing. His first touchdown pass, a 22-yarder to McBride, gave the Tribe (2-4) a 24-7 halftime lead.

Penn cut the deficit to 24-14 but Caprio's second touchdown pass, this time a 5-yarder to Sean Ballard, extended William & Mary's lead to 31-14 with 7:24 left in the third quarter.

McBride, who also hauled in seven passes in the Tribe's Sept. 22 matchup with Delaware, finished with 128 yards and has registered at least one reception of 20 yards or longer in the last six games.

Billy Ragone led Penn (1-3) with 207 yards and two touchdowns on 21-of-35 passing but was sacked four times.

    D.C. artist turns her love for the Washington Capitals into works of art

    Local artist Taylor Kampa has taken her love for the Washington Capitals and turned it into works of art. 

    You can find paintings done by Kampa of Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson, Nicklas Backstrom, T.J. Oshie, John Carlson and Braden Holtby on display at Circa Chinatown – a restaurant neighboring Capital One Arena – along with other D.C. celebrities.

    A professional artist for the last decade, Kampa told NHL.com that the pictures were "passion projects," and took about eight hours to finish. She became a fan of the Caps after she began dating her now-husband back in 2009.

    Her work has even caught the eye of The Great Eight. After posting a video to Instagram of her painting Ovechkin hoisting the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner liked and commented on it. 

    "I almost died," Kampa said.

    "It has been amazing sharing something that I am excited about that resonates with the people in my city," Kampa said. "I've been painting these portraits for a long time, so it's awesome to have them seen by so many people."

    Kampa will also create paintings for the Capitals foundation's annual Casino Night fundraiser next year.
