All that momentum rolled into the second quarter when Ethan Gilson showed off the accuracy of his deep ball, connecting with Cameron Grasso on a 45-yard touchdown reception. Nisky led 34-0, and Grasso wasn’t done yet.
In the winding minutes of the second quarter, Grasso scored on a 32-yard run, tallying his third touchdown of the game. The Silver Warriors won 47-0.
