Cleary, a sophomore quarterback, completed 26 of 35 passes for 387 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the game. The Foresters scored on a 61-yard pass play to senior running back Charlie Quinn and on a 63-yarder to senior wideout Alex Pasiewicz. Cleary's yardage total was the second-highest in program history and his completion percentage (74.3%) and pass efficiency rating (186.02) on the day are the sixth-best marks in team annals.
