The Polar Bears went up 10-0 with a 14-play, 74-yard drive capped by Kevin Miao’s 1-yard run early in the second quarter and went into halftime with a 10-7 lead.

Quarterback Mac Caputi, who replaced injured starter Grant White in the second period, moved the Polar Bears to another touchdown with a drive featuring a 24-yard pass to Sean O’Malley and capped by an 18-yarder to Michael English for a 17-7 lead.

The Polar Bears’ defense took over from there, holding Hamilton to 49 yards of total offense and racking up five sacks in the second half. Garvey nailed a 22-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
