Trabuco Hills would extend their lead to 5-0 on a safety forced by defensive lineman Spencer Herson. Mission Viejo took a 7-5 lead on a pass from quarterback Ian Fieber to Sean Modster that would be the final score of the first half.
The second half was all Diablos. Looking like the heavy favorite they were coming into game, the Diablos scored two touchdowns each in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

His talents were on display on the offensive side of the ball as well when he caught a 26 yard touchdown from Fieber in the 4th quarter. With score then at 28-5, any doubt that may have remained in the game disappeared.
