POUGHKEEPSIE, New York — Anthony Francis threw the game-winning 29-yard touchdown pass to Armani Martin with 5 seconds to play and Marist came from behind to beat Jacksonville 17-16 on Saturday, ending the Dolphins' seven-game win streak.

Trailing 16-10 after Jacksonville's Brandon Behr kicked his third field goal of the game, Francis marched the Red Foxes (3-6, 3-3 Pioneer) 65 yards in 13 plays. Francis was 14 of 29 for 172 yards.

Kade Bell threw a TD pass and Behr kicked field goals of 23, 28 and 34 yards for the Dolphins (7-2, 5-1). Bell was 29 of 40 for 306 yards and an interception, which the Red Foxes converted to a score after a 1-yard run by Atiq Lucas.

Marist led early after a 31-yard field goal by Mike Maccarone, but Bell connected with Ulysses Bryant on a 1-yard TD pass and Behr kicked a field goal for a 10-3 Jacksonville halftime lead.
