The ensuing PAT by Zachary White-Stellato tied the score at 7-7 with 5:13 left in the half.

The next Spartan drive sputtered out in four plays and Rochester followed with a nine-play, 34-yard drive that ended in a White-Stellato 38-yard field goal with 11 seconds left before half.
Case tried to rally on its second possession of the second half but had a 13-play, 84-yard drive end in an interception by Cole Valko in the Rochester endzone.

The defense kept the Spartans alive in the fourth quarter when senior linebacker Lucas Sasala (Kittanning, PA/Kittanning) and junior LB Jacob Adams (Cincinnati, OH/Princeton) stuffed Rochester RB Clarence Onyiriuka on fourth and one at the Case 20.

Case’s next two drives reached Rochester territory but each ended in long missed field goal attempts.
