Special to the Miami Herald

Maurice Alexander threw four first-half touchdowns to three different receivers, leading the Broncos over the Spartans at Harris Field.

Alexander, whose first touchdown came on the very first play connecting with Keshaun Taylor for a 42-yard touchdown, finished the night 12 of 21 for 321 yards and five touchdowns.

The Broncos also committed 18 penalties for 180 yards, something coach Larry Coffey said cannot happen going forward.

“We’ve got to clean that up for when we play teams at a high level in the future,” Coffey said.
