Ursinus got on the board first as Monahan found Kelly down the middle for a 38-yard touchdown pass with 7:44 left in the first quarter that ended a short two-play, 56-yard drive for a 7-0 lead. 

The Bears went up 14-0 with 4:33 left on their next offensive drive, with Monahan finding Rahill from 36 yards out for the score.

Susquehanna got on the board with 5:29 left in the second quarter when Spencer Hotaling kicked a 33-yard field goal for a 14-3 Ursinus lead. The Bears answered back with a field goal of their own, when Boyer kicked a 33-yard field goal of his own with two seconds left in the half. 

In the third quarter, Ursinus went up 24-3 when Kelly rushed off tackle for a  40-yard score.

Susquehanna scored with 1:23 left when Casey Tosches caught a 14-yard scoring pass from Mark Rosenbaum that ended a long 14-play, 79-yard drive, putting Susquehanna within two scores at 24-10. 

Boyer added another field goal, this one from 28-yards out with 10:23 left in the fourth for a 27-10. He tacked on another with 1:42 left, from 22-yards out.
