Ryan Van Liere would start the scoring off for the night with a 29-yard rushing touchdown to give Mattawan a 7-0 lead. The second quarter was all St. Joseph. A pair of Thomas Moore touchdowns from 8 and 4 yards would give the Bears a 14-7 lead at the half. Ryan Van Liere would even the score in the third with a 1-yard score to tie the game up. Joron Brown was tired of a tight game, so he broke it open with a 14-yard touchdown and a 52-yard touchdown run. Matthew Lanier would find Jordan Bell for a 19-yard touchdown to put the cherry on top of a 34-14 win for the Bears.

Joron Brown had 185 yards on 30 carries and two score. Matthew Lanier had two completions for 43 yards and a touchdown as well as 87 yards on the ground. Thomas Moore had two touchdowns on 13 carries to go along with 63 yards.
