The Green Terror, which trailed 33-14 at the half, outscored the Eagles 22-2 in the second half. McDaniel's defense shut out the Eagles' offense in the final half. McDaniel intercepted Jacob Lewis three times in the second half and forced the Eagles into three long missed field-goal attempts.

Bridgewater's only score came on a snap over the punter's head that rolled into the end zone and was recovered for a safety.
