The second half was all Bridgewater as the hosts scored twice including an 81-yard rush by Thomas Tate.

Avatus Stone made the defensive highlight of the day as he returned an interception from the CUA 2-yard line all the way back for a touchdown.  The 98-yard return is a season high for the Cardinals.
