Despite Red Land taking a 14-0 lead in the half with a few turnovers off Mechanicsburg, it was ultimately the Wildcats taking the win against the Patriots. Mechanicsburg got one back early in the third quarter and would add another courtesy of Jeffery Lougee to take the lead late in the third. The Wildcats would put this game out of reach when Lougee takes it himself on the 70-yard rush to make it 27-17 Mechanicsburg.
