The Indians jumped on the scoreboard first after Kris Crossett punched in a four-yard touchdown run, taking a 6-0 lead into the second quarter.

Sherburne-Earlville tacked on another one before the end of the half to take the lead 12-6 as Irwin connected with stand-out running back Lincoln Owen for a 54 yard touchdown completion. The two point conversion pass attempt from Irwin failed, keeping the score 12-6 at intermission.
