Princeton would turn the ball over twice, giving the Middies excellent field position to work with. Marshall would throw a 40 and 26 yard touchdown in the quarter. In addition, Marshall would break loose for 76 yards to put Middletown in front 34-7 at the half.
The Vikings would continue to show great pose in the second quarter, forcing Middletown to three turnovers in the game. Despite a touchdown by the Middies in the fourth quarter, Princeton would drive the length of the field for a Gilbert 2 yard touchdown.
