The Yellow Jackets jumped out to a 7-0 lead at the 5:59 mark of the first quarter when junior quarterback Ryan O'Rourke (Avon/ Senior) threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Aaron Manders (Toledo/ Cardinal Stritch) to complete a 2-play and 43-yard drive. Sophomore placekicker Chris Mohler (Kent/ Roosevelt) made the PAT kick.
 
The Fighting Muskies tied the score 7-7 at the 14:56 mark of the second stanza when sophomore QB Dalton Smith threw a 16-yard strike to senior Ronnie Graham to complete a 3-play and 14-yard drive that was set up by a 61-yard punt return by junior Andrew Davis.  Freshman PK Caleb Carpenter made the PAT kick.
 
B-W regained the lead at 14-7 at the 8:36 mark of the second quarter when sophomore WR/ cornerback Kevin Johnson (Maple Heights/ Cleveland St. Ignatius) caught a 55-yard TD toss from junior QB Andrew Dziak (Maple Heights/ Parma Padua Fransiscan)  to complete a 3-play and 56-yard drive.  Mohler's PAT kick again was good.
In the third quarter, B-W extended its lead to 16-7 when senior defensive tackle Max Wagner (Mentor) recorded his second safety this season when he sacked Dalton Smith in the endzone at the 6:52 mark.  Wagner again came up big with three minutes left in the stanza when he again sacked Smith and forced a fumble deep in Yellow Jacket territory.

Undaunted, the Muskies came right back and travelled 49 yards in two plays and scored when Smith passed 43 yards to sophomore WR James Washington, who caught the ball at the B-W 20-yard line and ran untouched the rest of the way. Carpenter's PAT kick made the score 22-14 with 1:39 left in the third.

Following a sack and forced fumble by senior defensive end George "Sonny" Hazelwood at the Muskie 10-yard line, B-W took over at the Muskingum two.  Following a number of plays and penalties by both squads, O'Rourke lofted a 7-yard scoring pass to senior WR Troy Van Meter (Gahanna/ Westerville North) with 6:00 left. Mohler's PAT kick gave B-W a 29-17 lead.
