In the 3rd quarter, Newman was able to generate a scoring drive off a 17-yard run by Arch Manning and a touchdown pass from Manning to Christopher Hunter to give the Greenies a 7-6 lead.

With 47 seconds left in the ballgame, Comets quarterback Ayden Authement would use a series of spin moves to break free for a 27 yard touchdown run to give St. Charles Catholic the 12-7 lead.
