The game was put away in the fourth quarter after Reagan was not able to capitalize after a 10 minute drive, the Firebirds were able to score quickly and make it a two touchdown lead.

The final touchdown was an impressive catch by senior wide receiver Murphy Theodore in the corner of the end-zone. Theodore was able to keep his feet in bounds while momentum carried him out.
