The fifth-ranked Tigers would take advantage scoring two third quaryer touchdowns to run out to a 21-7 lead.

The seventh-ranked Dragons would not score again until a 12-yard touchdown run by T.J. Skelton in the fourth quarter. Jefferson would not be able to tie the game.

Washington-Wilkes scored first in the first quarter to grab a 7-0 lead. Jefferson would tie the game in the second quarter on a 5-yard TD run by Tristan Jackson.
