Again the Boomers came back as Kale Hixon hit Kaleb Roach with a  7-yard touchdown pass just 7 seconds before halftime. Jason Alexander's kick evened the game 14-14 at the break.

Wagoner again scored first in the third quarter on a 5-yard by Evitt.

The Boomers evened things up later in the quarter on Dakota Taylor's 10-yard run.
