The 6-foot, 4-inch, 230-pound Hughes broke some tackles and sprinted 66 yards down the right sideline. Sebastian Aguirre '14 added the extra point with 6:48 left in the first. Aguirre was a perfect 5-for-5 on PATs.

Wesleyan added to its lead early in the second quarter. A 19-yard punt return by Donnie Cimino '15 gave the Cardinals great field position at the Hamilton 41. Warren found Jonathan Day for a 16-yard gain on first down, and then Drew carried the ball four straight times for 25 yards. The last run was 8 yards around left end for a touchdown with 10:37 to go.

Wesleyan took a 21-0 lead late in the quarter after Beaird's interception of a Rosenberg pass at the Cardinals' 31. Kyle Gibson '15 gained 20 yards on four carries and Warren completed a 26-yard toss to Jay Fabien '15. On third-and-7 from the Continentals' 12, Warren found Josh Hurwitz '15 for 7 yards and a first down at the Hamilton 5-yard line. Two plays later, Warren rolled to his right and completed a 3-yard toss to a wide-open Stevens in the end zone with 1:18 remaining.

Wesleyan went up 28-0 on its first drive in the third quarter. Drew was stuffed for eight yards in losses on his first two carries. On third-and-18 from his own 24, he took the handoff and went up the middle on a draw play. Drew busted through the line of scrimmage, sprinted through the secondary and ran 76 yards into the end zone with 13:20 left in the third.

The Cardinals scored their last touchdown seven minutes later. Wesleyan's drive started at the Continentals' 38 after a 29-yard punt from deep in Hamilton's own end. After two short completions and an incomplete pass, The Cardinals faced fourth down from the 34. Warren dropped back and lofted a pass that the 6-2 Fabien wrestled away from 5-9 Glen Donovan '16 at the goal line for the touchdown.

The Continentals (0-2, 0-2) avoided the shutout on Pastorella's 24-yard TD strike to Jensen in the left side of the end zone with 4:54 remaining in the fourth quarter. Pastorella was 4 of 4 for 79 yards on the scoring drive. Jensen has seven touchdown catches in his Hamilton career.
