Quarterback Wes Terzi threw just his second interception of the season in the first quarter. The Titans’ defense couldn’t quite stop Branford’s running back Jackson Seward (87 yards and a touchdown in the first half ) or quarterback Sean Kelly, as the Hornets went into the break with a 27-14 lead.
Then came the third quarter.
On the second play from scrimmage of the quarter, Bogan broke free for an 80-yard touchdown to make it 27-21 after Justin Moore’s extra point. On Branford’s next possession, Mickey Deming sprinted around the edge and sacked Kelly, who fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Nick Barbieri.
“We got the momentum going in the right direction,” Ferrazzi said. “Once we had that energy on our side, we thrive on that.”
Three plays later, and Bogan was in the end zone again, this time from 10 yards out. Bogan scored five touchdowns in the third quarter alone, from distances of 80, 10, 25, 26 and 10 yards to take a 49-27 lead heading into the fourth.
He tacked on two more at the start of the fourth quarter from 51 and 28 yards before heading to the bench.
