Schmelzer finished 16-23 passing with 223 passing yards and three total touchdowns. Touchdowns from Matt D’Avino and Brady Post gave Montgomery a 27-14 lead with 4:34 remaining in regulation.

Rodriguez finished with two receiving touchdowns, quarterback Brenden Pacheco completed 15-29 passes for 342 and had three total touchdowns.
