Gladiators got on the board in the 2nd quarter, when Henry Nell’s field goal attempt was blocked by the Gladiators Nick Rossi and returned for a touchdown by CK Miles to tie the game at 7-7

After a three-and-out by the Bulls the Gladiators offense took control as Matt Letourneau connected with Mark Evora for a deep strike and Jeremie Chumack rushed for his first touchdown of the season as time expired in the half. 20-7 Glads.

Maine and Taunton trades series until Letourneau connected with Mark Evora and Marcus Grant to go up 36-7 early in the 4th.

Southern Maine surged late as saftey Kyle Roberts took an interception to the house, quarterback Ryan Stroud connected with Deon Wiggins stoke and a rushing touchdown brought the game within one score. A failed onside kick with under a minute to play would put the game away 36-28 in favor of the Gladiators.
