The rain, sleet, and snow poured down on Fischer Stadium, making it clear both team's offenses were going to have a trying time with their passing game. Passing attacks and wide open offenses were replaced with grind them out ground games. Neither team was able to score by the end of the fourth, leading the game into overtime. Phillipsburg was able to move the ball to the 10-yard line and kick a winning field goal.
