Moline scored once again and Bryce Birgenheier scored twice to extend Geraldine’s lead. Ian Schabarker would score next. The half would end with GHW ahead of the Bears 39-13.

Moline scored one last time, Birgenheier found the endzone on a punt return, and then ran to the endzone again in the fourth to complete GHW’s victory over the Bears.
