Tivon Clark got the first of his two scores as his 36 yard burst late in the first quarter cut the Eastern lead in half. The score would say that way until early in the third period as on Easterns first possesion of the 2nd half Jason Davis went 32 yards to return the lead to two scores. Moments later the Wildcats struck again as a simple screen pass to Herbin turned into the coup de grace as Eastern took a 28-7 lead into the final period.
