The Panthers scored on a safety and a field goal to lead 5-0 for most of the game. On Matanzas’ last possession of the game, however, the Pirates converted a fourth-and-long situation, resulting in a Matanzas score. The Pirates attempted the two-point conversion but were unable to convert there.
Nease got the ball back with under two minutes to play. The Panthers ultimately turned the ball over on an interception, ending the game with Matanzas on top 6-5.
