The Broncos did avoid a shutout with a touchdown in the waning minutes of the game. The drive started at the B-K 19, and a pass to Brody Paulsen and a long run by Tate Sander put the Broncos at midfield. Clayton Pletsch then ran the ball to the SH 25-yard line. A five-yard run by Sander put the Broncos in the red zone for the first time in the game. Pletsch carried the ball into the end zone for the score with 39 seconds left.
The final score was SH 38, B-K 7.
