With Proctor leading 18-14 halfway through the second quarter from scores by Richard Pete and Walkery Mills, the game turned quickly into a bare knuckle brawl with both team's defensives forcing multiple turnovers to end the first half. The second half started as the first half finished with neither team scoring until halfway through the fourth quarter when Proctor Quarterback Jordan Treen hit Mills for his second touchdown of the game. Proctor's victory was sealed when Rome missed a game tying field goal with just over a minute left.
