Summary:
                 In the first half it was all T.R. Miller as the defense held Deshler to one first down and 33 total yards. Meanwhile, the Tigers racked up 11 first downs and 182 yards to take a commanding 14-0 halftime lead. The second half would prove to be very different as Deshler would comeback to score 28 points and win the game on a missed conversion try in overtime.
                 Deshler had tied the game with three seconds remaining in regulation on a three yard pass from Scott Thompson to Doug Garrett. Patrick Smith bulled his way for the two point conversion to tie the game. Garrett would score on the second play of overtime and Kyle McKinney kicked the extra point to seal the win. T.R. Miller would score on the first play of overtime on their possession but the point after was just wide and the championship belonged to Deshler.
