Following several successful rushing and passing plays by the Panther offense, Dayton found the end zone again for a touchdown and, with a good PAT, the Panthers were up 14-0. The rest of the second quarter was again a defensive battle and the score remained 14-0 at half.

The Panthers received the kickoff to start the second half. Marching down the field, Dayton found the end zone again and, with a successful PAT, the Panthers were up 21-0. Possession of the ball went back and forth but that was the only score in the third.

The Panthers took the 21-0 lead into the fourth quarter. They quickly converted to start the fourth with Dayton yet again crossing the goal line to take the Panthers to a 28-0 lead. With 1:49 left in the game, the Wranglers finally found the end zone and, with a good two-point conversion the score was 28-8.
