Continental freshman LB Austin Durham (Camp Hill, Pa.) intercepted Trinity sophomore QB Hedley Jennings (Charlotte, N.C.) at midfield and Hamilton advanced as far as the Bantam 28-yard line, but Trinity junior S Julian Brown (Philadelphia, Pa.) broke up a Continental pass with a hard hit just as the ball arrived to sophomore RB James Stanell (Coopersburg, Pa.) inside his own 10-yard line on 4th-and-7 to end the drive on downs. Trinity answered quickly with a 51-yard scoring strike from Jennings to wide-open sophomore WR A.J. Jones (Freetown, Sierra Leone ) down the left sideline less than a minute into the second quarter.
