The Grizzlies recovered an onside kick to start the third quarter, but Chelsea forced a fumble, and a short time later Hill bulled his way in from a yard out to give the Bulldogs a 14-6 lead.
After a bad snap on a Grizzlies punt, the Bulldogs capitalized on good field position and Hill ran it in for his third score of the night and a 21-6 lead.
The Bulldogs started the fourth quarter in a big way when Sam Borcherding returned an interception for a touchdown and a 28-6 lead.
A Thomas Shemwell touchdown run extended the Bulldogs lead to 35-6 before the Grizzlies scored a late touchdown to make the final 35-14.
The Bulldogs took advantage of a short field all night as the Grizzlies ran 94 plays to just 38 for Chelsea and were outgained by Ypsilanti 416-249 in total yards.
Chelsea improved to 3-1 overall on the season.
