Despite being outscored in the first quarter, The Falcons were able to step up on defense to keep it 13-11 at the end of the first.

Los Fresnos Came alive in the second half as Los Fresnos was able to pick up the pace on offense and netted 19 points in the second quarter. The strong offense of Los Fresnos allowed the Falcons to lead by four at the half to make the score 30-26.

The Falcon defense stepped up big in the second half, shutting down and limiting the Raider offense to only 22 points scored in the second half. Los Fresnos also took control on offense, controlling the ball, and held on to win 65-48.
