Tim Costello '13 added the extra-point for a 14-0 lead.

Andrew Grombala '13 caught a 17-yard pass from Burgess with 13:39 left and Michael Budness '15 punched it in from the 1 with 9:50 remaining. A bad snap led to a missed extra-point and a 27-0 advantage. Crick scored on an 11-yard run with 6:10 left and Bunker scampered into the end zone from 6 yards out with 2:34 remaining.

Crick's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:32 left in the third were the only points of the quarter. Stanell scored on a 3-yard run to put Hamilton on the scoreboard with 12:35 remaining in the fourth. Hoy added the extra-point.

Foye found Will Herbert '15 for an 8-yard touchdown and a 53-7 cushion with 6:58 left. The PAT sailed wide to the left. Dillon Mitchell '15 rounded out the scoring for the Continentals with a 6-yard TD catch from Eck with 2:23 remaining.

The Bantams had 26 first downs, went 9 of 15 on third-down conversions and 2-for-2 on fourth down. Trinity scored touchdowns on all six trips inside the red zone. The Bantams won their 18th straight game against Hamilton and lead the all-time series, 34-11-1.

The Continentals host Bowdoin in NESCAC action on Saturday, Oct. 13. Trinity will try to move to 4-0 next Saturday when the Bantams host winless Tufts University.
