Warren found Jonathan Day for a 16-yard gain on first down, and then Drew carried the ball four straight times for 25 yards.

On third-and-7 from the Continentals' 12, Warren found Josh Hurwitz '15 for 7 yards and a first down at the Hamilton 5-yard line. Two plays later, Warren rolled to his right and completed a 3-yard toss to a wide-open Stevens in the end zone with 1:18 remaining.

Wesleyan went up 28-0 on its first drive in the third quarter. Drew was stuffed for eight yards in losses on his first two carries. On third-and-18 from his own 24, he took the handoff and went up the middle on a draw play.

The Cardinals scored their last touchdown seven minutes later. Wesleyan's drive started at the Continentals' 38 after a 29-yard punt from deep in Hamilton's own end.
