The 2nd half was a little rough, as emotions got the better of both teams, as each received unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. In addition MDI received a roughing the kicker penalty, facemask penalty and more. MDI also coughed up the ball 3 times. Despite that, MDI's defense played extraordinarily well, bending but never breaking in the second half.
