Tough Start For MMA Football

The Privateers scored three touchdowns and a field goal to lead 22-0 at the half.
After neither team could score in the third quarter, SUNY added another touchdown to lead 29-0.
That's when the Mariners scored their only TD, a Bailey Sawyer to Cole McDaniel 69-yard pass play.
The Privateers scored the last TD of the day to make the final score 36-8.
