DeBlois completed 28-35 (.800) passes for 305 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from fullback Adam Hodges, on a "throw-back" play. Hodges caught 11 passes for 99 yards and one touchdown, and also threw the 14-yard strike to DeBlois. Hodges, with 43 catches this season, needs just nine more to set a Hamilton mark for most catches in a season. Milleisen ran for 138 yards on 24 carries and scored two touchdowns. He also caught six passes for 57 yards.
Colby, however, opened the scoring at 5:50 of the first quarter on an 18-yard touchdown pass from PJ Mattson to Tom Killela. After Ed McDevitt recovered a fumble for Hamilton, Scott Milleisen capped an 11-play, 52-yard drive with a two-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter.
Milleisen again scored with a three-yard TD run with 5:28 left in
