Alma went up 42-17 on a 79-yard touchdown less than a minute into the third quarter. 

Kalamazoo scored midway through the fourth and followed with a blocked punt that resulted in a safety to make it a 42-26 game, but two fourth quarter touchdowns sealed the win for the Scots.

Alex White finished 24-of-47 passing for 359 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Collin Feilla hauled in nine catches for 215 yards and two scores. Zak Zagon added 90 yards on seven catches.
