Smackover took advantage of a short field and early in the second quarter the Buckaroos found their way to the end zone to take a 14-7 lead with 9:29 to play in the first half.

Paris worked hard and came back with a score of their own in the second quarter. A missed extra point attempt left the score at 14-13 at the halftime break.

The Buckaroos came out on fire in the second half and quickly took a 21–13 lead over the Eagles but Paris didn’t quit and with 42 seconds remaining in the quarter, the Eagles cut the Buckaroos lead to 21-19.

The fourth quarter belonged all to the Buckaroos as they reached the end zone three times to end the Eagles’ season with a 41-19 loss.
