The Canes’ defense stalled a Colonel drive at the goal line, going 99 yards in seven plays on the ensuing possesion, with Tyburski providing the points.

Potter bumped the lead to 21-0 midway through the second period. Hartford held a 28-6 lead at halftime, courtesy of a 45-yard Tyburski scoring burst with two minutes on the clock. The Canes tacked on two more Tyburski TD runs (1 and 18 yards) in the second half along with a 22-yard Ezra Mock scoring dash. Devin Speno tossed three touchdown passes for the Colonels.
