Mason Molan’s extra point made it 7-0 for the Thunder. But on the ensuing kickoff, the Jaguars’ Landon Moser ran it back 68 yards to tie the game at 7 with Reed Volden’s PAT.
After EEK had a fumbled snap on a punt, Northern Cass took over at the Thunder 28 yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Julian Leichtenberg connected with Andrew Schenck on a 28 yard TD pass. The extra point made it 14-7 Jaguars with 6:45 left in the half.
On the Jaguars’ next possession, Joseph Kramlich intercepted a Leichtenberg pass and returned it approximately 20 yards for a touchdown. Molan’s extra point kick was blocked, keeping Northern Cass in the lead 14-13 with 2:29 to go in the half.
