As time expired in the first half, Cassopolis quarterback Collin Bogue hit Daishean Jamison for a four-yard touchdown pass to give the Rangers their first lead of the game. Cassopolis led 18-14 at halftime.

But the second half was all Bobcats, Krueger would run in a seven-yard score and Anthony Calderon would add a one-yard touchdown to give Brandywine the 30-18 lead.
