On the next drive the Mustang defense forced a fumble out of the KIPP quarterback and got the ball at the Gator 25. Watson would find Demorris Thibodeaux for an easy eight-yard pass to top off the drive. It only took the Mustangs two plays as they went up 21-0 with 2:05 in the first.

The Mustangs pinned the Gators way back on their own 5. On third down, after two plays gained zero yards, the Mustang defense sacked Desmond Houston for a safety making it 23-0.

The very next kickoff, Jarron Morris took it to the house with a 61-yard kickoff return touchdown as the Mustangs grabbed a 29-0 cushion.

The KIPP Northeast Gators would find the end zone for the first time with about eight minutes left in the first half. Desmond Houston would find Devoyne Provo for a long 81-yard pass. The Gators would go for a 2-point conversion but fell short.
