A touchdown catch by junior running back Demetrius Massenburg from quarterback Chris Tutwiler got the scoring started in earnest. Green Hope kicker Zach Doernburg connected on the extra point, which brought the score to 7-3 in favor of the Falcons.
In less than a minute after the Falcons got on the board, Athens responded with a 41-yard catch and run by the Jaguar’s Henry Smith off a pass by senior quarterback Brad Bowling. Evanoff connected on the extra point, which gave the Jaguars a 10-7 lead going into the half.
