Middletown controlled the game for the first half and with a 21-0 halftime lead it looked like the game was all but wrapped up. However, behind star running back Shamiek Washington, and with some much needed help from the defense, Port Jervis made a late surge to score 21 points in the final 14 minutes and send the game to overtime. In the overtime period, Middletown was able to stop Port Jervis from getting into the end zone and sealed the game with a 14 yard field goal.
