THE LEADERS
Davon Ingram (Sparrows Point, Md./Dundalk) caught five passes for a career-best 88 yards.

• Brady Berger threw for 226 yards, completing 27 of 45 passes.
• Jake Ballard led three players in double-digit tackles with 16 tackles.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Brady Berger split wide and took the ball on a reverse before finding Andrew Lunarola for a 31-yard touchdown pass to complete a 10-play, 74-yard drive. The ensuing PAT was missed to keep it 6-0 with 6:49 to play in the first quarter.
• After an Aris Mayield (Calverton, Md./Parkside) interception, Ben Igo (York, Pa./York Suburban) hit Davon Ingram for a 62-yard gain. John Chamberlin paid it off one play later with a two-yard run and the PAT made it a 7-6 lead with 11:26 to play in the second quarter.
Matt Cathey did the lion's share of the work on a five-play, 47-yard drive, including a seven-yard touchdown with 5:18 to play for a 14-6 lead.
• Berger found Mekhail White on a five-yard fade in the back corner of the end zone but failed on the two-point conversion to close within 14-12 with 1:30 to play in the second quarter.
• The Green Terror responded. Igo hit Aaron Grant (Brooklyn, N.Y./Erasmus Hall) on the first play of the drive before capping the five-play drive with a one-yard dive to stretch the lead to 21-12 with six seconds remaining.
Peyton Denlinger (Lancaster, Pa./Lampeter-Strasburg) capped a 16-play drive with his first collegiate field goal – a 31-yarder – with 3:12 to play, stretching the lead to 24-12.
