UMD took a 9-7 lead when senior defensive back Joune Fraser (Barnstable, Mass.) tackled SRU senior running back Connor Kelly (Milford, Conn.) in the end zone for a safety later in the first quarter, then Osols added a 32-yard field goal on the ensuing possession to make it 12-7.

Cosgrove connected with junior wide receiver Kiki Louis (Lowell, Mass.) on an 80-yard scoring pass to make it 18-7 2:26 into the second quarter after Osols' PAT was blocked. But Kelly scored barely two minutes later on a one-yard run, Wilken connected with sophomore wide receiver Matthew Traynor (Secaucus, N.J.) on a 45-yard scoring play, junior wide receiver Paul Panarelli(Shrewsbury, Mass.) returned a punt 41 yards for a score and the Seahawks recorded a safety to make it 29-21, SRU at halftime.

The Corsairs scored first in the second half on a 35-yard field goal by kicker Edgar Osols' (Summit, N.J.) to cut the Seahawks' lead to 29-21. One possession later, junior defensive back Joshua Burnett recovered a fumble in the air after a pass completion by Corsair freshman quarterback Liam Cosgrove (Plymouth, Mass.) and raced 27 yards to score to make it 36-21. Senior linebacker Kevin Hilliard (North Reading, Mass.) intercepted Cosgrove on the ensuing possession and returned it to the UMD 25. One play later, SRU sophomore quarterback Steven Wilken (Ringwood, N.J.) raced 24 yards to score to make it 43-21.

Wilken capped an 88-yard drive with a 16 yard pass to senior wide receiverTrey Scales (Boston, Mass.) in the fourth quarter to make it 50-21 before sophomore defensive back Phil Terio (Trumbull, Conn.) returned an interception 68 yards for the final score of the game.

Cosgrove completed 24 of 45 passes for 235 yards and two scores for UMD, with 10 different receivers catching passes. Wilken was 19 of 30 for 326 yards for SRU, with Scales catching six passes for 146 yards. Kelly carried 20 times for 65 yards.
