There was a running clock in the entire second half with RTCA well out in front. In the third quarter with 5:30 on the clock, Toole came up with an interception for the Crusaders. That led to a touchdown pass from Stanley to Tripp Durden with 1:30 left in the third. Meeks added the extra point to make it 43-0 with RTCA in complete control.
In the fourth quarter the Matadors finally got on the board on a pass with eight minutes left in the game. They failed on the two-point conversion, but RTCA was still in front 43-6. Neither team scored over the remainder of the game as RTCA was able to get in a lot of younger players. The Crusaders took the win 43-6 over Memorial to take the Region Title.
