During the first round of overtime Silverado took advantage of their starting possession to score, and then Clark proceeded to do the same. The second round of OT was defense heavy as both offenses were unable to score. Then during the third round, Silverado managed to score but failed to make their conversion. At this moment the Chargers offense knew they had to step up and score. After they managed to score they knew that the conversion point had to be made to win the game. During the final minutes Clark QB Jay Gomes found Jaeda Centeno in the end zone to secure the win for Clark.

Jaeda Centeno caught 3 touchdown passes as the Chargers won their third straight game. Meanwhile senior quarterback Jay Gomes managed to complete 11 of 20 passes for 82 yards and rushed for 241 yards.
