Flushing added just two touchdowns in the second half. The first came in the third quarter when Roberts punched in a 5-yard carry. Andrews then added his second rushing touchdown of the night on a 4-yard carry in the fourth quarter for the 34-7 final.

Andrews was 7-of-10 passing for 74 yards and a touchdown. Andrews also added 52 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 12 keepers. Murphy caught four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown. Joe Jaruzel caught a 19-yard pass, Noah Matheson an 11-yard pass and Tyler Morris a 4-yard pass.
