Angel Ibanez, Arunulfo Ruiz and Dilpreet Singh each recorded a sack on defense. Steven Gomez came up with a fumble recovery. Orlando Biggs, Martin Estrada, Tyler Fitch, Nelson Orellana and James Smith chipped in three tackles each.


Jamari Hodge rambled for 125 yards and two scores with just eight carries.

Jesus Gomez (5 tackles, fumble recovery), Alexander Aguilera (5 tackles, 2 for loss) and Zane Salgado (4 tackles, 2 for loss, forced and recovered fumble) were the defensive standouts for the Jags.
