Rockwood wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, taking the opening kickoff at their 38 and going the distance in six plays to take a 6-0 lead on a 39-yard pass from Brackett to Jayden Hannibal; however, Ben Woodall missed the PAT with 9:37 left in the quarter.

The Panthers took a 7-6 lead on their second possession of the quarter, as Caden Brinisma passed 32 yards to Holten McDaniel for the score. The PAT was good for the lead. After a short kickoff return by Garrett, the Tigers over at their 40-yard line, the Tigers marched the distance in eight plays and scored on Brackett's 9-yard pass to J. Hannibal. Waldo scored the 2-point conversion for a 14-7 lead. Alexander had a 26-yard run, while Waldo carried three times for nine yards.

Cumberland Gap took over after the kick and ran one play before the first quarter ended. On the second play of the second quarter, Brackett picked off the Panther quarterback, but the play was nullified after three penalties were called - two on the Tigers and one on the Panthers.
Ethan Thomas fumbled on the next play when tackled by Alexander, with Fickey recovering Thomas' fumble at the Panther 20-yard line. J. Hannibal then raced into the end zone for the 20-7 advantage. Woodall's PAT made it 21-7.
