Heritage held a 20-0 halftime lead with Jacob Franco scoring a rushing touchdown, and Landon Larsen passing for two touchdowns to Pato Cantu and Lane Hargrove. Cantu made two extra points. The Jaguar special teams also came up with an onside kick, to help secure the first-half lead.
In the second half, the Indians scored the first drive, making the score 20-7 Jaguars. Larsen completed another touchdown pass to Lane Hargrove, making the score 26-7 after a failed PAT attempt.
