Cedric Spence had a 1-yard touchdown run and Simpson added a 63-yard run to make it 23-0 in favor of the home team at the half.

After a scoreless third quarter, Jermaine Simpson made a one-handed stab at a Gaither Bumgardner pass and raced 79-yards to make it 30-0. After Tony Hobson scored on a 1-yard run for Great Falls, the Panthers (3-5, 0-3) finally got on the board on a 25-yard run by Justin Bristow. Keitron Jackson then ran it from 20 yards out to make the final 44-6 Red Devils.
