Several players stepped up for both teams.
Quarterback Lane Campbell played well for Hoopa, including scoring on a 26-yard TD run for his team’s opening score of the game.
he also combined with teammate Darvin Davis IV on a 10-yard scoring pass to give the visitors a 19-7 advantage late in the second quarter.
Gerard Marshall also scored on a short TD run.
