The run game began to take shape as the offensive line - Tanner Parker (58), Marc Fontanilla (77), Kaleo Gomes (56), Andrew Hoffman (75), and Logan Tucker (74) - allowed the Mats' Leif Jensen (22) to hit pay dirt on a 3 yard TD run. XP pass from Brandon Shah (1) to #5 was good. The Mats' defense - led by Kobe Jerusalem's (33) sack, Mathieu Rocheleau's (26) batted pass and great tackles by #74, #22, #28, and #33 - helped stop the Falcons before the half. The game tightened up in the second half as the Falcons scored midway through the third quarter. Granada responded with the ground and pound, led by #22, #6, and #5.
