Jack Gruenzinger threw for four touchdowns on the night, including three to Mason Fisher.

Westminster got on the board with 4:19 left in the first quarter when Gruenzinger found Kyrece Walker for a 7-yard touchdown reception. The lead grew to 14-0 in the early stages of the second quarter when Gruenzinger found Fisher streaking down the right sideline for an 84-yard touchdown reception.

With just over seven minutes left in the first half, Gruenzinger found Fisher again — this time for a 60-yard strike down the middle — to make it 21-0. The final score through the air came with roughly two minutes left in the second quarter, courtesy of a 22-yard catch by Fisher.

Westminster’s Owen Harris then closed the scoring with a 25-yard field goal as time expired before halftime.
