Going to their passing attack, the Colts played bombs away as Brenden “Catch Em’ All” McCall reeled in a TD grab and a two point catch to put the Colts up 40-12. Staying with their air campaign, the Colts’ lead ballooned to 48-12 as Aaliyana Cifuentes tallied a TD and two point snare. Trying to stay in the hunt, the Jets made it 48-20 game on a 20 yard TD pass to Cohen while Jack Kruchkowski hauled in the two point dart. Continuing to work her magic, the Colts’ Aaliyana Cifuentes turned a short toss into 6 points and a commanding 54-20 advantage. Undaunted by the challenge, the Jets closed in as TD’s by Kruchkowski and Cohen cut the Colts’ lead to 54-32. With just 3 minutes remaining, the Colts put the victory in the vault with TD’s by David Matos and Cifuentes while Brenden McCall and Cifuentes also tacked on two point plays. Down 70-32, the Jets did get the last word as Cohen racked up his fifth TD followed by a Kruchkowski two pointer but in the end the Colts ruled as they came away with a 70-40 victory.
