The Bears went ahead 7-0 late in the first quarter on a Kevin Cook one-yard scoring plunge.

Andrew Walz found John Krafick on a 35-yard scoring strike and Cook hit paydirt twice, on runs of 1 and 28, to give the Bears a 35-0 halftime lead.

The Mariners entered Bears' territory three times in the second quarter but came away empty handed. Bradley Reed's 26-yard pass to Ryan O'Neal set MMA up at the WNE 38 early in the second quarter. The drive ended four plays later when Brandon Ormsby intercepted a pass. 

O'Neal's 33-yard sprint with eight minutes left before the break gave the Mariners the ball at the Bears 36. WNE's defense was up to task again and forced a turnover on downs. 

O'Neal, again, put MMA in WNE territory with a 29-yard run to the Bears 42. The Mariners reached the 31 before turning the ball over on downs.

WNE opened the second half with a four-play scoring drive, capped by Michael Ozzella's 22-yard sprint.

Dustin Forbes returned the ensuing kickoff 58 yards to the Bears 28. WNE's defense stood tall and forced a turnover on downs four plays later.

Tucker Schmitz made it 49-0 with an 18-yard run, Kevin Patterson converted a 21-yard field goal and N'Dabian found the endzone on a 68-yard run - all in the third quarter - to give WNE a 59-0 lead.
