This was a hard fought game by both teams, with defense from Poly and City playing strong throughout. Neither team scored in the first half, but the OL of Poly and City both fought hard and gained ground. The engineers made it onto the board first but didn't maintain their lead for too long. A huge run by City tied the game, and then the Black Knights scored a 2 point conversion, making the score 6-8. In the 4th quarter, City was allowed a Safety, bringing the score to 6-10.
