With the Icabods being the underdogs in this match up they were well prepared to quiet the storm in the red sea, the Ichabods put up 14 points in the first half leading the Gorillas 14-7 at half time. The Gorillas would be the first team on the board scoring on 5 plays, 68 yards ending the drive with a four-yard rushing touchdown by running back Jeff Seybold.
On Washburn’s second drive they would tie the score with a one-yard rushing touchdown by Brandon Bourbon, with Washburn’s tenacious defense going to work they would go up 14-7 with four seconds on the clock before half. With Washburn forcing the Gorillas to punt early in third quarter they would apply more pressure by scoring on a seven play, 75 yard drive with Derek McInnis hooking up with Bryce Chavis for 21 yard touchdown reception going up 21-7.
With the Ichabods defense showing no remorse they would hold the Gorillas to a 28-yard field goal completed by Chad Levin.
