Tom Sturges rushed 31 times for a game-high 148 yards, and his team had 333 yards rushing.

Flynn hit Ricky Manigat for a 37-yard touchdown to open the scoring with 6:45 remaining in the first quarter and capped a quick seven-play, 48-yard drive five minutes later with a 14-yard touchdown run.

Charles Curcio and Sturges scored on runs of 6 yards and 1 yard, respectively, in the first eight minutes of the second quarter to push the lead to 28-0 before the Blue Jays' Alex Lachman poked home a 32-yard field goal to make it 28-3.

The Bullets added two field goals by Josh Huson (42, 21) before Flynn darted 50 yards for a touchdown one play after an interception to make it 41-3.

A 9-yard scoring pass from Eric Callocchia to Alex Quermorllue closed the scoring.
