With 9:17 left in the first half, Drake completed a 4-yard pass to Will Cork for another Demopolis touchdown. Wilson’s extra kick was blocked, leaving the Tigers score at 34-0 with 7:26 to go in the second quarter. The Bears finally got on the board near the end of the first half with a 1:14 left when Ben Allen ran 63-yards for the touchdown. Allen then ran the ball in for the two-point conversion and put the score a 34-8 at halftime.

The game’s final score came at the beginning of the third quarter when Drake connected with Peyton Stevenson for a 51-yard touchdown. Wilson’s last kick of the night brought the score to 41-8.
