Pirates outlast ODU in opener, 52-38

Posted: Updated:

East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden threw for a school record  447 yards and five touchdowns as the Pirates survived a wild one over Old Dominion, 52-38.

Ty Holmes scooped up an ODU fumble and returned it for a touchdown early in the third quarter to give the Pirates a little bit of room in the game, but the Monarchs never backed down.

Freshman receiver Davon Grayson scored three touchdowns. Junior receiver Justin Hardy caught 16 passes for 191 yards.

East Carolina is back in action this Thursday night when the Pirates host Florida Atlantic.
