CSS answered on the following the possession as Alex Thiry threw a perfect lob pass over the defense to Travis Nehowig for a 31-yard touchdown connection. Taylor McGinnis' extra point tied it at 7-7.

After the teams exchanged interceptions, the Saints would settle for a 23-yard field goal from Cole Karsky to make it 10-7. Thiry would get injured a play prior to the field goal and would be replaced by Jake Olson the rest of the way.

Eureka responded on proceeding possession by starting in Saints' territory and taking the lead on an Alex Hess five-yard touchdown run to make it 14-10 at the end of the first quarter.

The Red Devils made it 21-10 halfway through the second quarter as Jordan Krone connected with Wes Schmidgall on a slant and he did the rest going 67 yards for a touchdown.

After the Red Devils were forced to punt on their opening possession of the second half, it took the Saints just two plays as Olson once connected with O'Neill for a 57-yard touchdown pass to make the score 24-21. After another Eureka punt, the Saints used the ground game, running the ball all nine plays as Travis Nehowig capped the drive on a one-yard touchdown plunge to make it 31-21 at the end of the third quarter.

CSS added the final touchdown of the game 1:11 seconds into the fourth quarter as Jonny Bennett caught a 28-yard touchdown pass that made it 38-21. The Red Devils were then intercepted on their next two possessions to make the final score 38-21.
