Tyler Johnson scored on a 30-yard touchdown run for Lockport to trim the H-F lead to 28-14 with 1:17 left in the first half. But Aaron Gooch returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards to the Lockport 29. Two plays later, Vashon Nutt scored his second score of the game from a yard out. Following an interception by Reginald Howell, Cutrara found Harley-Hampton with a 15-yard touchdown pass and the Vikings took a 41-14 lead into halftime.
