Rogers City scored it first touchdown on an 11-yard run from Jacob Malocha with 4:21 left in the first quarter. Chris Lopez took a punt 71-yards for the next Huron score with 3:08 left in the half. A Quintin Kelly pass to Grant Popour made it 14-0.

Evan Lamb's (5) touchdown run gave the Hurons a 21-0 lead.

Running out of a full house backfield as they did much of the game, Evan Lamb capped and 89-yard drive with a 6-yard TD run at the 7:21 mark of the third quarter. Lamb’s kick made it 21-0.

Malocha set up the next Huron score with a 43-yard interception return to the Rudyard 22 yard-line. He capped the short drive with a 7-yard run to make the score 27-0 with 4:00 minutes left in the third quarter.

The last Huron score came on a beautiful pass play from Kelly to Lopez down the right side, good for 49 yards.
