GMC looking for their second win in a row, grabbed a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter when the Bulldogs turned a Silver Storm turnover-on-downs into a 9-play, 67-yard scoring drive with just under seven minutes left in the opening quarter.

The Bulldogs increased the score to 21-7 after GMC scored on its third-quarter opening drive. On the subsequent possession ASA drove to the GMC 15 only to turn the ball over to the Bulldogs on a fumble.
