The White Tigers tried to claw their way back into the game with a huge interception by Gunnar Campbell, as he went the distance and gained 20 yards, but the Tri-City Christian defense came out on top and stopped the White Tigers from getting a touchdown, so Escondido Charter settled for a field goal. The Eagles led 21-0 going into the half.
