The Pirates moved the ball into Trumann territory before being stopped on a fourth and nine play giving the ball back to the Wildcats at their own 39-yard line with 6:21 left. Trumann lined up to punt on fourth down but tried to get tricky with a fake punt only to see Will White's pass intercepted by Gosnell and returned to the Pirates' 18-yard line with 1:04 left. Gosnell had a big run out to 44-yard line as the quarter ended with the score 0-0.
