Philo received the opening kickoff to start the game. The Panthers defense did a good job holding the Electrics, not allowing them to score. Philo retaliated on their second possession, when quarterback #14 Zak Sheridan ran through the middle into the end zone for a 16-yard touchdown at the end of the first quarter; making the score 7-0.
With some back and forth play from both teams, the Panthers used Player of the year candidate #25 Jeremy Willison to move them down the field to the one yard line. Willison ran around the right side into the end zone for the Panthers first touchdown 5:04 in the second quarter.
With the score now tied at 7-7, Maysville kicked off to Philo. During the return, Philo fumbled the ball on their own 29-yard line, the Panthers coming up with the ball.

Sheridan then handed it off to #42 Kaleb Wiseman who ran it in for a Philo touchdown to tie the score, again, 14-14 and bring the first half of the game to a close.

The Philo defense could only do so much against Willison’s constant pushing down the field for yet another Maysville touchdown 4:12 in the fourth quarter. The Panthers missed the extra point, only giving them a 6 point lead, 20-14.

The Panthers were forced to punt, giving Philo the ball on the Panthers 49 yard line. #41 Shayne Tanner ran it in for a Philo touchdown, making the score 21-20 7:24 in the fourth.
