The Hornets scored early and often.

Monroe scored again in the first quarter, with 1:46 left when Ben Leahy passed to Jason Osterman for a 31 yard TD score. Monroe scored. their 3rd 1st quarter score when King went in form the 1.  

The Hornets increased their lead to 28-0 in the 2nd quarter when Ben Leahy scampered 23 yards into the Hound end zone.
