Elijah Rodriguez hit Vinal on a 15-yard touchdown pass in the second, with Carson Maynard adding the conversion run. Jacob Davis had a pair of touchdown runs in the second half. Rodriguez caught a point-after touchdown from Maynard and added a nine-yard touchdown to finish the Cyclones scoring. Berger, Benson McGillicudy, Noah Bufalini, Cameron Byrne and Davis led the defense. Kyle Shepard added a fumble recovery, and Berger and Maynard each had an interception. The C team moves on to the Empire Classic.
