Tanner Hollenbeck came on for the extra-point field goal attempt and sent it through the uprights, giving his team an early 7-0 lead.

The Hornets were knocking on the door, attempting to answer when they drove down the field for 53 yards. Going for it from the Tigers five yardline on fourth-and-goal, Wilson’s number was called. But Max Johnson of Tioga refused to give up the score, tackling Wilson at the two.
