Starting at their own 43-yard line, the Big Blue drove 57 yards in eight plays and grabbed a 7-0 lead when Nick Pippin connected with Brady Cufaude on a 14-yard touchdown pass.

Millikin's lead was short lived as Elmhurst answered back immediately. The Bluejays used a 57-yard drive keyed by a 39-yard run from Josh Williams to even the score at 7-7.

Elmhurst took a 10-7 lead early in the second quarter by capitalizing on a Millikin turnover. Alec Giles picked off Pippin at the Elmhurst 30 and returned the ball 15 yards. A horse collar penalty on Millikin at the end of the run gave Elmhurst the ball at the Millikin 40-yard line. The Bluejays drove down to Big Blue's eight-yard line before settling for a 27-yard field goal from David Tomis.

The Bluejays defense forced Millikin into a three-and-out after the field goal. Elmhurst's offense then drove to the Millikin 23-yard line and Tomis boomed a 40-yard field goal through the uprights to put the Bluejays on top 13-7.

Elmhurst had a chance to add to their lead late in the half after Stephen Ritter intercepted Pippen and brought the ball back to the Millikin 19-yard line, but the Bluejays drive ended with a Millikin interception at the goal line. The Bluejays led 13-7 at the half.

The Bluejays wasted no time to add to their lead in the third quarter. Elmhurst took the opening kickoff and drove 75 yards in 11 plays with Williams capping the drive with a 23-yard touchdown run.
