The opening kickoff had Divide County kicking off to the MLS Mavericks. It was a very tough defensive battle between the two teams in the first half, and neither team could find their way into the end zone in the first quarter. It wasn’t until 1:05 to go in the half when the first touchdown of the game was scored, and that was by Divide County when Trent Bossingham connected with Evan Eriksmoen for a 34 yard touchdown pass (run failed). Divide County now lead 6 to 0. But it didn’t take long for the Mavericks to answer, as Connor Brackenbury completed a 46 yard pass to Jesse Mott for the touchdown with 30.4 seconds to play, and Trevor Evanger scored the two point conversion to put MLS up 8 to 6 at the half.
Divide County took over the game in the second half, as they scored a touchdown in the third quarter and three in the fourth quarter to earn themselves a playoff spot. Evan Eriksmoen scored his second touchdown of the night with 8:30 to go in the third quarter, on a short 3 yard run (run failed). Divide County now lead 12 to 8. Eriksmoen would add two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter, his first came at 11:30 mark and was a 24 yard run, and he added the two point conversion. Then with 3:26 to play, Eriksmoen scored again on a 12 yard run (Jarret Obenchain pass from Taylor Elsbend). The Maroons final touchdown of the game was scored with 2:12 to play, when Aidan Eriksmoen scored from 7 yards out (run failed). The final score was Divide County 34 - MLS 8.
