The Elkhart home-town fans were hopefull and both teams went into the game with a 3 & 0 record.

The Elks team were valiant in their attempts to score, but the Sabine Tigers appeared to keep going and going, simply wearing the Elkhart players out. There was a heart-breaking goal-line interception. The interception took the wind out of the sails. The Elks scored two touchdowns, but that wasn't enough to overcome the Cardinals 35 points.

R.J. Moore ran 21 times for a total of 140 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Cade Starr threw for 146 yards and one touchdown.
