The Beavers took an 8-6 lead in the third quarter after a 27 yard scoring strike and a successful 2-point conversion.

They expanded their lead to 16-12 after a short pass and another successful 2-point conversion.

The home team turned up the heat and got back in the game after a 34-yard scoring strike from Oliver Billotte to Ian Billotte.
