The Sun got on the board nine minutes into the contest when Britton, aided by a roughing the passer penalty, march the Sun 76 yards in five players, culminating in a 53 yard strike to a wide open Mike O'Shea down the right sidelines.

One play after Phillip Palmarin blocked a punt deep inside Kodiaks territory, Britton again found O'Shea of a screen pass.

The second-year receiver did the rest, slashing his way down the left sideline for a 21-yard touchdown.

The lone bright spot for the Kodiaks came early in the second quarter, when Keon Raymond II returned a wide 30 yard field goal 125 yards for their lone touchdown on the night.

Britton marched the Sun down the field on the ensuring possession, hooking up with Noah Bymak for a 44-yard score on third and two.

They built the lead to 28-7 just before the half ended when Aiden Wiberg scampered 30 yards for his fourth major of the season.

Nathan Tonagai electrified those Sun fans in attendance, taking the opening kickoff of the second half 108 yards to put the visitors up 35-7.

Clayton tossed his first career touchdown pass later in the quarter, hitting Bymak from three yards out.

Kemarr Bishop closed out the scoring with a 71 yard punt return.

Liam Attwood also booted a 37 yard field goal while the Sun put up two more points on a conceded safety.

Lineman Kelon Thomas led a swarming defence with a pair of sacks and a fumble recovery, one of four turnovers the Sun created on the evening. They also blocked two punts and came close to two or three others.
