Sparks would run into the endzone on offense to give the Bulldogs a 21-0 lead with six minutes remaining in the first quarter. Summit tried to get something going on offense when Brandon Goff tipped a pass and it was picked off by Cox.

Cam Tucker would take an option play in for a touchdown. After a quarter of play, it was 28-0 Palisade.

The Bulldogs finish the regular season 7-3 and now await their seeding for the 3A State Playoffs.
