St. John’s quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava walked off the football field at Gonzaga three minutes into the fourth quarter and burst into tears. 

Maiava had just thrown a 66-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cameron Ross to help secure what would be a 34-17 victory for the No. 1 Cadets on Saturday in Northwest Washington, but tears spilled down the signal caller’s face.
