It quickly became a shootout with touchdowns going back and forth. Then the Rangers pulled ahead, making the halftime score 21-12, Northwest.
In the third quarter, the Bulldogs really turned up the heat with two unanswered touchdowns. Third quarter score, 26-21 Holmes. The fourth quarter brought another shootout with back and forth touchdowns. With an incredible six touchdowns in the fourth quarter alone, the Holmes Bulldogs upset the Northwest Rangers with a final score of 47-42.
