Game Summary

At the game both teams were focused on the Rivalry Series Championship Trophy and Coach Reyda and Coach Paro had their men prepared. The Eagles would score first after an early Prep fumble that was recovered deep in the Hoyas territory. After a couple of quick plays, running back Chris May ran between the tackles to score the games first points and give the Eagles an early 7-0 lead. Prep remained focused and came out strong in the second quarter. The defense forced junior quarterback, Kevin Hogan, out of the pocket and to his first interception of the game. Following the Gonzaga turnover, Prep moved the ball down the field and would eventually score off a Jack Schryber touchdown run from 6-yards out. Coach Paro decided to go for two and the lead but failed as the Eagles defense stood strong. The teams would enter the locker-room at half with the score in the favor of Gonzaga, 7-6.
