THE SKINNY STORY
McDaniel combined a balanced offense with a stifling defense to top Gettysburg, 25-0. The Green Terror outgained the Bullets 350-123, scoring in every quarter and pitching its first shutout since 2010.

THE LEADERS
Davon Ingram (Sparrows Point, Md./Dundalk) caught five passes for 82 yards.
John Chamberlin (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) ran the ball 25 times for 81 yards.
Tyler Palermiti (Hudson, Fla./Dunedin) completed 15 of 26 passes for 195 yards.
Jarius Ransom (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) led the defense with 11 tackles.

FOR THE FOES
• Johnny Davis caught three passes for 49 yards – more than half of Ryan Finlay's 90 yards passing.
• Six Bullet defenders reached double-figure tackles. Jake Skinner and Jack Humphries led the way with 14 stops each.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Taking over at midfield, the Green Terror drove 43 yards in 12 before having to settle for a 24-yard Peyton Denlinger (Lancaster, Pa./Lampeter-Strasburg) field goal and 3-0 lead with 3:15 to play in the first quarter.
• Two plays after a 53-yard catch-and-run by Davon Ingram (Sparrows Point, Md./Dundalk), Aaron Pray III (Germantown, Md./Maret School) found the end zone for his first touchdown in a McDaniel uniform, stretching the lead to 9-0 with 10:38 to play in the second quarter.
• A Kiree Moore (Arlington, Va./Westlake) interception set up the offense at the Gettysburg 37. Five plays later, Isaac Murray (Columbia, Md./Atholton) broke through the line and scampered 20 yards for a touchdown and 16-0 lead with 5:05 to play in the third quarter.
Aaron Grant (Brooklyn, N.Y./Erasmus) hauled in a catch on fourth-and-5 for a 28-yard gain. One play later, John Chamberlin (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) found the end zone one play later from four yards out for a 23-0 lead with 4:45 to play.
• Jarius Ransom added a safety with 1:40 to play.

THE INSIDE STORY
Joey Cornwell's (Rockville, Md./Rockville) first punt of the day went 71 yards, tying the program record for longest punt. The record was originally established in 1948 (William Seibert) and duplicated by Scott Glouse in 1983. Cornwell averaged 42.9 yards on seven kicks.
Jarius Ransom reached double-digit tackles for the third straight game.
• It was the first win for McDaniel in Gettysburg since a 22-20 win on a last-second field goal in 2009.
• The Green Terror recorded its first shutout win since 2010 and blanked Gettysburg for the first time since 2004.
