After punting and stopping the Cougars deep in their own territory, the defense came up with multiple stops and forced the Cougars into taking a safety. This with about 1:18 on the clock. Cougars 19- Falcons 15. Cougars punted to #42 Calvin Green who took the ball back into the Cougars territory. SP had no timeouts and drove the ball on passes down the field.
