East Carolina didn't have it anywhere near as easy against UNC-Wilmington, but ECU did come out winners nonetheless.

The teams were very close through most of the first half, with the score 10-7 ECU when center Matt Hughston scored a try to put East Carolina ahead just a little bit more just three minutes before halftime.

Hughston added a penalty to make the score 18-7, and while Wilmington replied with a try from wing Vince Faison to close the score to 18-14, ECU had the final say, scoring twice late to put the game away 30-14. Hughston ended with 15 points.
