On 3rd Down with 10 yards to go, Bevan drops back to pass, he moves around in the pocket and gets the pass off just before crossing the line of scrimage, hitting wide open Dameon Morgan (#4) in stride at the one yard line for a TD. Foy kicks the PAT.
On their next MHs strikes quickly with Bevan hitting Lopez who had streaked past the defenders to catch Bevan's 33 yard pass at Chaparrals 22 yard line, Lopez sprinted to the end zone untouched. Foy added the PAT.
