The defense played tough as the Blue Devils' running and passing games were held in check.
The next offensive series saw the Devils struggle with penalties, as two touchdowns were called back for illegal motion and holding. "We had to overcome some penalties. I was proud of the way we overcame the adversity and continued to play," commented JV head man Kevin Blizzard. The offense got back on track the next possession and scored on a pass play from Bo Reed to Josh Hollimon. Vance Tarver's pAT kick gave the Devils a 13-0 advantage.
