At the start of the second quarter, Manning would find Johnson again for their second touchdown of the night on a beautiful diving catch in the back of the endzone.
A forced fumble would give Newman the ball right back and Arch would roll out and find Pike Philibert in the back of the endzone to give Newman a 21-0 lead with 8:51 to play in the first half.
2 and a half minutes later, Manning and the Greenies offense would find themselves threatening again thanks to an interception from the defense.
