THE SKINNY

TURNING POINT

Titans running back Steven Schroeder took a handoff up the middle on the game’s first offensive play and raced 65 yards untouched into the end zone.

THE STARS

Brett Laurie (seven carries for 75 yards and three receptions for 43 yards) scored on touchdown runs of 12, 46 and 7 yards, while also hauling in a 25-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Fitz Stadler (7 of 11, 160 yards, 2 touchdowns in one half of play). Schroeder carried five times for 102 yards and one touchdown. The Titans defense was led by linebacker Tommy O’Hara with nine tackles, while fellow linebacker Quinn Conaghan had seven.
