Kennan Wilbanks was taken off the field with broken tibia and fibula. With 1:58 remaining in the first, Drake Casey brought it in for the Rams.  The kick was good and the score was tied 7-7.  With :42 remaining in the first, Susan Moore answered back with a long run down the field for the score.  The Bulldogs went up, 14-7 to start the second quarter.

After a 30-minute lightning delay, the Rams had a 54-yard touchdown by Gareth Anderson called back due to a block in the backfield.  With 4:19 remaining in the third, Anderson once again crossed the goal line from 2-yards out to tie the game 21-21.
