The Bengals (4-1, 2-1) played a sloppy game in terms of penalties that helped North (3-2, 2-1) stay with the potent offense.

North tailback and offensive horse for the Tigers, Quintin Hoosman (43 carries, 282 yards) blew through the Bengal defensive line for a 2-yard score setting up the game winner when kicker Jerrick Jozwiak split the uprights touching off a huge celebration winning the contest 27-26.
