The Titans took a 16-0 first quarter lead as Kingrey threw TD passes of 61 yards to Bryce McGraw and 16 to Eugene Collins.

Jones från 16 yards for a score to cut the deficit to 16-6 early in the second quarter, but Kingrey threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Myles Phillips and then ran 13 yards for a score and it was 28-6 at the half.

Jones broke free on a 30-yard scoring run to make it 28-12 to start the second half, but Kingrey hooked up with Phillips on a 21-yard scoring strike and Davis ran for the conversion to make it 36-12 at the end of the third quarter.

Luke Cassidy ran 40 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and Kingrey and Chris Piccolo teamed up on a 54-yard scoring pass play to cap the scoring.
