David Rinaldo added the first of three extra points to make it 7-0.

The Bulldogs tallied again on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Marcus McCants to Bubba Dunn later in the first quarter. Zephyrhills had taken possession at the Dunnellon 45-yard line following a short punt. McCants' 19-yard pass to Dunn set up the score.
