BROCKPORT, NY - The Brockport Golden Eagles defeated the Alfred Saxons 38-0 Saturday afternoon in the regular season finale. Before the game, a ceremony was held in honor of the team's seniors.

Brockport would tack on a Nate Wigent field goal in the second quarter to make it 10-0 at the half.
The Golden Eagles completely took control of the game in the third quarter. Following an interception by Alaan Montgomery, Jala Coad would finish the job with a 1 yard TD. Coad would score again on the next drive to make it 24-0, a drive that began with a Neil Levantini fumble recovery. Lawrence Jenkins would finish the third quarter tsunami with a pick 6 to put Brockport up 38-0, a score that would hold to the end of the game. Smith and Van Woert would combine to throw four interceptions on the day. Brockport quarterback Jack Cheshire threw for 58 yards on 9 completions, and Jala Coad added 120 more yards onto a spectacular regular season, totaling 1,198 rushing yards.
