The Braves took an early lead in the game which was key to holding off a furious Eagles comeback in the second half. With 7:28 to go in the first quarter, Jelani Foote grabbed a pass from Antonio Benevides and tacked on many yards after the catch to take a 6-0 lead. Late in the first quarter, James Jarski broke a long run that got the Braves to the Eagles five yard line. Foote ran the ball in for a touchdown. Benevides scored on A keeper for the two point conversion to make the score 14-0.
