The Komets were off to a hot start, making it difficult for the Aztecs to gain any momentum on offense.
In fact, on the first Aztec possession, the Komets forced a fumble which resulted in a Komet touchdown by Nico Estrada, for a 7-0 lead.
During the second quarter of the game, the Aztecs started to take control of the game with the help of running back Jaheem Williams, who scored two touchdowns in the second quarter, passing the Komets, 14-10.
The Aztecs went for their third touchdown in the second quarter, but Caleb Berry protected his end zone and intercepted the pass.
On the next possession, the Aztecs returned and did the same thing as quarterback Mario Alves had his pass intercepted by Benjamin Larsen.
As the second half approached, the Komets scored a 67-yard touchdown from Alves to Dazure Paggett. From this point on, the Komets were not able to shorten the gap due to the Aztecs’ dominating defense.
