This drive cap off what was an exciting game between in county (Palm Beach) rivalry game. This was the 9th meeting between these two team in a 4 year span with the Soldiers having a 5-4 advantage over the Makos. The game had a lot of offensive flair and defensive strongholds. Both teams threw great punches but the Makos held the edge with a 22-14 lead at the half.
In the 3rd quarter the Makos seemed to be going for the knock-out punch when McGregor hit Chris Cunningham for a 3 yard score bringing the score to 28-14. However, the Soldiers found their will and in the 4th quarter scored 16 unanswered points to take the lead with only 1:40 left in the game. This seemed to be the counter-punch on the Makos. As the Makos took the field, there was a sense that the sleeping shark smelled blood in the water and was out for the hunt. With a 1:34 left on the clock, 78 yards to score, and with 2 time outs, the Makos went to work. McGregor found 3 different receivers in Johnson, Stubbs, and Pritchard to move the ball to the 19 yard line with under 10 seconds on the clock where he delivered a perfect stike to Stubbs for the winning score leaving 6 seconds on the clock. Adding the two point conversion, the Makos took a 36-30 lead and ultimately the win. However, the Soldiers tried one last ditch effort on the ensuing kick-off by pitches which seem to work but the Makos pushed the runner out of bounds which ended the game. The win took the Makos to 3-0 in the division.
Leading the charge for the Makos on offense was Josh McGregor with 16/34 passes (2 interceptions) for 234 yards and 3 touchdowns; leading receiver was Calvin Pritcahrd with 3 catches for 58 yards and 1 touchdown; leading rusher was Antonio Thurston with 10 carries for 68 yards and 2 touchdowns.
