After allowing the Savage Storm to tie the game, the Tigers responded by scoring on a Brockton Brown one yard touchdown run with 53 seconds left in the first quarter.
Neither team could get any offense going in the second quarter as each squad’s defense locked into the game. However, a tipped pass over the middle led to a Hayden Lassiter interception that set up a 24 yard field goal from Gabe Goodman as time expired in the half. The Tigers went into halftime with a 17-7 lead.

Ouachita only needed one play on their drive to score as Freeman brought in a 51 yard touchdown pass from Brazeal. The score is all Ouachita needed as they won the contest 27-14.
