The Lions jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a 49 yard touchdown run by Senior Patrick Beck. Early in the second quarter the Lions extended their lead to 14-0 after a long drive that was capped off by a 1 yard touchdown run by Freshman Quarterback Jonathan Spiess. Liberty Union was able to get on the board early in the third quarter to cut the Lions lead to 14-6.
