On the next drive, Brayden Smith blocked a punt, and Moore scooped up the football and ran it 48 yards to help the Eagles go ahead 20–0.
Wells at quarterback fired a strike to Faircloth downfield for an 18-yard touchdown reception to make the score 26–0. The 2-point conversion run by Wells was good, and DEA led 28–0.
Faircloth scored the Eagles’ last touchdown of the night on a 35-yard run, tacking 6 more points onto the scoreboard for DEA, making the score 34–0. Wells again ran in the 2-point conversion, shutting out Hearts 36–0.
