Pierce responded with a touchdown from Kevin Ascencio on a 34-yard run with the extra point being good.

With less than four minutes in the half, Hancock would restore a 10-point lead. Jerome Afe catching an eight-yard pass from Matt Garcia. 

At the start of the second half, the Bulldogs went all offense. Desmond Newkirk scored on a one-yard run and Jones got his second TD of the game.

In the fourth quarter, Battle scored on a 63-yard run. Qualik Davies wrapped things up for Hancock, making the score 45-7.

Jakobe Harvey scored for Pierce in the final minutes of the game.
