The Eagles improved their lead to 42-7 with 1:48 remaining in the period after Lauters' five-yard touchdown run. Jake Meckstroth had intercepted the Blugolds' pass at UW-L's 21-yard line and returned it 15 yards to set up the scoring drive.

The Blugolds' Alex Delebreau threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Austin Goetsch with 14:51 remaining to cut the Eagles' lead to 42-14.
