Another turnover with six minutes left in the first quarter ended in Setterlund's second touchdown of the game.

With four minutes left in the first half, the Bucs halted the Eagles at their 45. In the first play of the series, Kingston's Bobby Reece caught a long pass from Byers; resulting in a 61 yard touchdown.
A fourth touchdown for the Bucs came after Kingston's Andrew Beversluis intercepted a Klahowya pass in the first play of the series. Kingston's Nick Tabanera would run the ball in.
Before the end of the half, Klahowya's Kasey Barnes-Trask avoided a shutout by kicking a 20 yard field goal.
