Anthony Thomas ran in the two-point conversion with 1:42 left. The Tigers' scoring drive was 8 yards, set up by an errant Hillsborough center snap to the punter.

Chamberlain got 43 yards in offense in the final 20 seconds after being limited to 51 yards on its first 17 plays. …The Chiefs were penalized five times for 45 yards in two quarters. …Hillsborough had two running touchdowns nullified by penalties on its first series: an 84-yarder by Randolph and a 35-yarder by Eric Bass. …Middleton chewed up 8 1/2 minutes on its first drive, a 59-yard march to the Terriers' 21, before giving the ball up on downs.

Audible 1: "We've got a new defensive coordinator (Denny Randolph), and we're excited at what (defense) did — tackled well, some pass deflections from Josh Rines, and defensively up front with Levon Brookings, Josh Scarberrry and Angel Alvarez. We've got a lot of young guys that want to get after it." — Gaither coach Mark Kantor
