1st Quarter
Walkersville choose to receive the ball in the second half. The Cougars drove all the way down the field on their first possession. They turned the ball over on the one yard line because of a fumble forced by Walkersville. For the rest of this quarter both teams had mediocre drives and were forced to punt the ball.

2nd Quarter
The Cougars started with decent field position and couldn’t capitalize. Then Walkersville had to punt the ball right back to the Cougars. The Cougars went for it on 4th down and couldn’t convert. Walkersville scored a couple plays later on a 65 yard Touchdown by Sophomore RB, Chad Gleason. Kicker, Brad Wolfe made the PAT to make it 7-0 Walkersville.

Wolfe made the PAT again to make it 14-0. Catoctin started off at the 30 because of a great kick return by there running back. With a few good runs Catoctin was set up at first and goal. The QB ran it in to make 14-6. Catoctin choose to go for two and failed. That ended the third quarter

Both offenses looked sloppy but the Lions defense stepped it up. Walkersville turned the ball over three times in this quarter. Their defense was able to pick up the slack and forced turnovers of their own. On Catoctin last drive, the quarterback threw a pick in the end zone which ended their hopes of a comeback.
