After Coast Guard converted a recovered fumble into three points to open the third quarter, Sylvia took over. He scored on runs of 32 and 11 yards to break open an 11-point game and extend the advantage to 35-10 with 5:11 left in the third. Junior fullback Tim Lutgens (Greenwich, N.Y., 11 carries, 77 yards) capped the 21-point outburst with an eight-yard run.
