Riesel responded with a 9-yard touchdown run for a 21-7 lead, which would be the score going into halftime. 

The third quarter was a defensive battle, as there was no scoring in the quarter. The Indians opened the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 7-yard touchdown pass to increase their lead to 28-7. The Cougars tried to stay alive with a 50-yard touchdown pass from Pryce Rabroker to Carson Kahlig to make the score 28-14, but it wouldn’t be enough and Rosebud-Lott would be defeated 28-14.

Despite throwing an interception, Pryce Rabroker played a great game, throwing for 134 yards and  a touchdown. Carson Kahlig was also terrific, catching four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown.
