Tompkins got the ball back on the kickoff at their own 1-yard line. Francis promptly threw a 99-yard touchdown pass to Matthew Ogunrin. The PAT was good and Tompkins took the lead 7-6.
The Falcons scored again on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Francis to Wyatt Young to make the score 14-6 at halftime.
In the 3rd quarter, possession of the ball went back and forth with neither team scoring in the period.
Tompkins LB Bryce Shaink and Caden Welsh both made interceptions to end drives for the Tigers.
The bulk of the scoring occurred in the final quarter. Tompkins scored on a 4-yard touchdown run by Caleb Blocker to increase their lead to 21-6.
Klein Collins scored on a 2-yard touchdown run by RB Michael Wilson to cut the lead to 21-13. It was their only offensive touchdown of the game.
In the waning moments of the game, Tompkins added to their lead with a 31-yard interception return by Tyler Collins for a touchdown to make the score 28-13.
