Neither team was able to break onto the board in the second stanza as Midway maintained a 14-8 advantage.

The Rangers, however, battled back in a big way.

Jamol Blamo evened things up at 14-14 in the first minute of the third quarter as he raced 51 yards for the touchdown.

Later in the quarter, D. Ramsey caught an L. Ramsey pass for an 89-yard touchdown that pushed UHS into the lead. As the third quarter expired, L. Ramsey scored on a four-yard run as Unaka took a 26-14 lead into the final 12 minutes of the game.
