In the first half quarterback Trent Hendix had a hand in both Panther scores with a long 62-yard run for a touchdown and then finding receiver Tony Lopez for another.

During the fourth quarter Hendrix would strike again this connecting with Wyatt Hendrix to tie the game at 18, before teammate Isaiah Cardenas returned a punt 55 yards to give the Panthers a 24-18 lead, albeit a short one.

On the night, Trent Hendrix posted big numbers, passing for 163 yards while rushing for an additional 122 yards.
