BROOKVILLE, N.Y. (AP) Donovan Wadley returned the second-half kickoff 90 yards for a score and had two touchdown catches as Merrimack defeated Long Island University 39-0 on Saturday for the Warriors' third straight win.

Wadley was untouched in scoring on the kickoff with the last LIU defender hitting the turf after being tripped by an official in his path. It was Wadley's second kickoff return for a TD this season.

Malakai Anthony found Wadley deep for an 83-yard touchdown and the game's first points, and the pair had a 40-yard score for a 36-0 lead midway though the third quarter. Those were Wadley's only two catches.

Anthony threw just nine passes, completing five, including three for touchdowns with Seth Sweitzer snagging the other score. Tyvon Edwards Jr. had 107 yards rushing on 25 carries.

The Warriors (4-3, 3-1 Northeast Conference) outgained the Sharks 398-131. The Sharks (1-6, 1-2) had just 48 yards passing and 83 on the ground.
