The Rams and Tigers opened overtime tied at eight a piece. The Tigers scored on the opening possession in overtime and kicked the extra point to take a 15-7 lead.

Mineral Ridge matched that score with a touchdown of their own, but instead of kicking an extra point as well to force a second overtime in front of their home crowd, they successfully went for the win and completed a two point conversion.
