Ross 2nd score came with 10:12 to play in the first half on a 33 yard flee flicker pass from Foley to Brennan McQuire. The extra point was good by Richie Burns.  Monroe answered 3 minutes later as Fugate hauled in an 8 yard pass from David Routson. The PAT was no good  so Ross maintained a one point lead at 14-13 at the end of the first half. Monroe received the opening kick-off in the 3rd quarter but turned the ball over and the Rams turned the turnover into 6 points moments later on a 6 yard blast by Tyler Davidson. Burns extra point was good, Ross 21-Monroe 13.

After a change of possessions Monroe scored with 2:36 to play in the 3rd when Chris Wilson caught a 5 yard TD pass from Routson. Monroe elected to go for 2 and Routson’s 2 point try, via the run was successful.  Moments later the Hornets would grab the lead as Junior Ramone Boyce jumped the Ram pass route, intercepted a Foley pass and waltzed into the end zone from 20 yards out. PAT from J, King made it Monroe 28  Ross 21.  The ensuing kickoff went  out of bounds and Ross took possession on it’s own 35.
