B-W led 7-3 after one quarter, 16-3 at halftime and 19-9 after three stanzas.

The Yellow Jackets opened the scoring at the 9:09 mark of the first quarter when sophomore backup quarterback Andrew Dziak (Maple Heights/ Parma Padua Fransiscan) grabbed a loose snap and scampered 11 yards for a touchdown to cap an 11-play and 61-yard drive in 5:51. Senior placekicker Brad Pollock (Brecksville/ Brecksville-Broadview Heights) then kicked the point-after-touchdown for a 7-0 lead.

After the Pioneer defense pinned the Yellow Jackets to their own goal line and a subsequent punt, Marietta closed to within 7-3 with 1:28 left in the first quarter when junior PK Kyle Cardwell kicked a 46-yard field goal to cap an eight-play and 13-yard drive in 3:49.
 
B-W increased its lead to 9-2 with a safety at the 10:36 mark of the second quarter when the Pioneer long snapper snapped the ball over their punter's head for a 34-yard loss, and when a B-W player tried to pick up the ball in the endzone, he fumbled it out the back of the endzone for the safety.
 
Following the free kick after the safety, B-W travelled 60 yards in six plays in 2:50 and O'Rourke scored on a one-yard sneak and Pollock added the PAT kick for a 16-3 lead.
 
Marietta took the opening kickoff of the second half and went 74 yards in eight plays in 4:04 to score a touchdown at the 10:50 mark when junior QB Andrew Keller threw a nine-yard scoring pass to sophomore wide receiver Kirby Harris. B-W then blocked the PAT kick to make the score 16-9.
 
B-W increased its lead to 19-9 at the 7:04 mark when it travelled 49 yards in 10 plays in 3:40 as Pollock booted a 28-yard field goal, his third in three tries this season.
 
B-W extended its lead to 26-9 with 10:41 remaining when O'Rourke lofted a 25-yard scoring pass to senior RB John McGraw (North Ridgeville) to cap a 67-yard, six play drive in 2:39. Pollock added the PAT kick of the season.
 
B-W made the score 32-9 just 14 seconds later when junior cornerback Matt Bowen (Tiffin/ Columbuan) picked off a Keller aerial at the 24-yard line and went untouched into the endzone. Pollock's kick was blocked, ending a streak of 22 consecutive successful PAT kicks dating back to last season.
 
B-W scored its final TD with 1:39 left in the game to make the final count 39-9 when senior RB Kyrell Crook (Columbus/ DeSales) sped six yards to paydirt to cap a six-play and 53-yard drive in 3:10. Pollock also added his seventh PAT kick of the game.

In addition to O'Rourke, B-W was led in rushing by Dziak with 76 yards in 10 attempts with the first TD of the game. Freshman WR Josiah Holt (Elyria/ Grafton MIdview) and junior tight end Aaron Hurd (Tiffin/ Columbian) led all receivers with six catches each and sophomore WR Aaron Manders (Toledo/ Cardinal Stritch) had four.
