The Mavericks defense set up the score of the game as Mavericks defensive back German Velasquez registered an interception and returned it 30yards to the Floresville five yard line but the Mavericks were penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct due to the excessive celebration which brought the ball out to the Floresville 20 yard line where a couple of players later wide receiver Luis Olvera took the handoff around right end and into the end zone with 7:08 left in the second period.  The point after attempt failed but the Mavericks now had a 20 to7 lead over the Tigers.
