Chelsea scored on its first possession, courtesy of a 48-yard touchdown run from McLeod at the 9:19 mark of the first quarter.  Logan Rudd added the two-point conversion.

Rudd stretched the lead to 14-0 after he scored on a 9-yard run with 10:20 remaining in the second period.

The advantage grew to 22-0 when Zack Eidschun connected with Dalton Feathers on a 31-yard scoring strike at the 6:50 mark of the second quarter.  McLeod ran in the two-point conversion.
