In the second half Anclote forced Fivay into a safety, then on the ensuing drive Barrett ran in for his second touchdown from 2 yards out.

The Sharks capitalized on their two-point conversion when John Forgione connected with Tyrene Carter, cutting the lead to only 10 with 1:03 left in the third quarter.
