    Carroll fell behind early in the first set, prompting a timeout with Carroll down 9-3. Carroll battled back with a three-point run to tie the match at 24.

    The Panthers opened the game with the ball and managed one first down on a run by Orlando Vasquez before a block in the back penalty set the drive back and forced a punt. Fortunately, a penalty ruined a good defensive effort for the Warriors, as they were flagged for roughing punter Zakk Wilson. Both teams drew another flag on the drive, and a sack on quarterback Dylan Groves killed the drive, forcing a punt.
