Ghostrider kicker Derek Scott nailed a league-record three field goals and finished with another record for kick scoring in a game with 13. Bunting had three rushing touchdowns, while Gerald Gales scored twice..
Juval Winston caught two of Conrad's touchdowns while Jarwarski Pollack and Jordan Slyle added one each.
