Camden Hills then took over at their own 20 yard line, but Laurendeau intercepted a William Haslam pass, and with 3:54 remaining in the 1st Quarter the Trojans had the ball at the Windjammer's 47 yard line. It took 4 minutes, and MDI was in the end zone again, this time on a 2 yard Alex Gray touchdown run. The 2-point conversion was good, and with 11:55 left in the 1st Half, MDI led 1-0.
Camden Hills then took over at their own 26 yard line, and found the end zone on a 7 yard pass completion from Haslam to Franklin Coffey. The 2-point conversion was no good, with the drive taking up 8 minutes and 34 seconds. With 3:14 left in the 1st Half, the Trojans led 14-6.
MDI then took over on their own 31 yard line with 3:06 left in the 1st Half. It was Gray scoring again from 2 yards out. The drive took 1:27 and after the 2-point conversion was good, MDI led 22-14 with 1:49 left in the half.
Then, the game turned weird! Camden Hills fumbled, and MDI took over on the Windjammers 37 yard line with 1:09 left. The Trojans turned the ball over on downs, and Camden Hlls took over with 38.4 seconds left.
The Windjammers were intercepted, and MDI had the ball with 24.9 seconds leeft on the Windjammer 46 yard line. A 60 yard run by Aiden Grant put the ball at the Windjammer 2 yard line with less than a minute remaining. The Windjammers were called for encroachment, and MDI spiked the ball, killing the clock with 0.1 second remaining. But the referee whistled for the clock to start, and MDI couldn't get a final play off, even though the clock had been stopped with the penalty and incomplete pass.
So the teams went into half time with MDI leading 22-6.
