The Warriors pushed the Volunteers back into the end zone, giving Martin a two-point safety. The first quarter ended with a score of 8-7 in Martin’s favor.

The second quarter began with James almost scoring a touchdown, but fumbled the ball and the Warriors recovered it and returned it to the end zone to score a touchdown. The Volunteers respond with a 69 yd. touchdown pass by senior running back Chris Gardner, followed by a successful two-point conversion by junior wide receiver Jesse Ebozue, rounding out the first half at 15-14 favoring Bowie.

After halftime, James has two more fumbles and senior linebacker Montana Rivas gets injured on a play. The Warriors gain an eight-point lead with a score of 23-15 by the end of the quarter.
