Shetley made the extra point. Union led 14-6 and never looked back.

Neither team could move the ball until late in the second quarter when Union started a drive on their own 36. Gory and Miller continued to be the go-to runners and moved the ball down the field in spite of a couple of penalties and tackle for loss.
