Backup quarterback Shane Cook led the next drive, before putting it in the endzone on a qb keeper. He also threw the extra point to Lucas Simon. Vestaburg came back and marched down the field, making the core 21-12 after three quarters.

In the fourth quarter, the Shamrocks made a few good drives, but could not put the ball in the endzone. The Shamrock defense played well, despite being a little banged up, and with the use of some blitzes, they caused some fumbles and were able to hold on for the win.
