Eamonn Boyd dug-in and hit a sharp grounder to the SS who could not make the play and the Giants had first and second with no outs. After the Dukes pitcher settled in and got two outs, Fiorino raced home on a passed ball to give the Giants the lead, which they would never relinquish.

On their first play of their second possession, Brentwood ran a sweep left and scored a touchdown. The extra point was good and Brentwood led 7-0. The rest of the first half was a defensive battle and Brentwood had the lead at halftime.
