Fisher out-gained Rochester 385-to-151, and had a 23-to-8 advantage in first downs.  

Fisher took the lead for good on a 9-yard pass from Kramer to Schmidt with 6:32 left in the first.   The drive, which went 65 yards on 13 plays, was kept alive after Rochester was assessed a 15-yard roughing the punter penalty.

Rochester made it 7-3 on a 24-yard field goal from Alex Antonucci with six seconds left in first. The scoring drive was set up after Rochester's Chris Bickford sacked Kramer, forcing a fumble, which was recovered by Cainaan Webb at the Fisher 31.

Fisher took control of the game in the second quarter, scoring 21 points over the stanza.

Schmidt scored on a 15-yard pass with 12:26 left in the second, ending the 8-play, 60-yard drive.

FuQuan Borum scored on an 11-yard run midway through the second quarter and Schmidt scored his third touchdown of the game on a 19-yard pass with four seconds left in the half, giving the Cardinals a 28-3 lead at intermission.
 
Fisher's Chad Monheim kicked a career-long 43-yard field goal with 9:40 left in the third quarter to make it 31-3.  

Fisher's special teams unit scored the team's next touchdown, as Kevin Ogiba blocked a punt at the Rochester 7-yard line and scooped up the ball at the Rochester 2 to score his first career touchdown.

The Cardinals closed out the scoring with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Ahmed Hassanien to Dan Rudy, the first touchdown pass and reception for both players.

The Fisher defense gave up a season-low three points.   Freshman Nick LoBrutto led the defense with eight tackles and one sack.  Wade Kline intercepted a pass and had a 27-yard return to set up Fisher's final touchdown of the day.

Rochester's Brendan Pidgeon led the Rochester defense with 15 tackles.

Fisher will return to action at 1 p.m. next Saturday and will host Hobart College. Rochester will host Union College at 12 p.m. in the Liberty League season opener for both teams.
