1:00 left — One minute warning…

2:24 left — DiMichele and Morris connect again…collision between Morris and Maul into the wall at the end, and both are shaken up but OK. They go for two and get it…Steel lead 73-53.

2:44 left — Oderick Turner’s been pretty quiet tonight…which opened things up for Damon Harrison…but he gets in on the act with a short TD catch of his own. Steel lead 73-45.

5:47 left — Carlos Ojeda flips an onside kick attempt into the front row…Steel ball.

5:47 left — Tirone Morris gets a quick TD grab, but the two-point conversion fails and Trenton’s up 66-45. Need to run some time off right here…

Harrison TD

6:11 left — Damon Harrison…he did what he does. Big score there…and that’s the dagger. 66-39 game.

8:30 left — The Steel get a turnover on downs…big stop. That may very well do it.

6:37 left — The Explosion had Tirone Morris under center at the goal line…he botched the snap, and Carl Spellman recovered. Steel ball.

9:19 left — Nemeth runs in another one, and the Steel are up 20. Big game, and the boys are coming up huge.

11:10 left — 4th and 19 for Erie…they’re going for it. They have to. Morris makes a juggling catch into the first row…but it doesn’t matter, they come up short.

14:00 left — Harrison with his fourth TD grab of the game! Steel lead 45-32.
