Errol Breaux (Marietta, Ga.) caught both of Reid's passes for 19 yards.

Decory Billups (Manchester, N.H.) punted six times and uncorked an ECFC season-long 65 yarder that was downed at the one-yard line.

Defensively, Malik Brown (Miami, Fla.) collected a game-best 12 tackles, while London Chambers (New Britain, Conn.) ended with two tackles for a loss, including his second sack of the year.
