Foxcroft started off the scoring in the first quarter with an opening drive touchdown, finished by a 12-yard TD by Clawson.

Foxcroft would continue to score in the second half of play as Clawson would connect with Richard for a score, while Michaleb Niles and Sekton Wandikbo would add on rushing TDs.
The Ponies would pick off Lynx QB Dominic Libbey three times in the game, twice by Hyatt Smith, and would also force one fumble in the contest. Libbey rushed for 34 yards on eight carries and completed just 2-7 passing. Matt Young led the offense with 92 yards on 22 carries for the Lynx.
