The Gaels' Edward Achziger bolted 10 yards on Dublin's first overtime possession for the eventual winning touchdown. Alex Marshall connected on the point-after-touchdown to give the visiting Gaels' a seven-point lead.

But they had to hold off a game Mariners team, with the ball set 10 yards away from the goal-line. Moreau Catholic (1-2) moved to the 7 on three plays. On the fourth-down play, Mariners quarterback Nicholas Kinast was hit by Dublin's Dennis Barber behind the line of scrimmage and the ball popped loose. Moreau's Robert Morales recovered the ball, but the play ended and Dublin (3-1) had the victory.

Moreau Catholic tied the score at 20 with 6:44 left in the game on the first varsity touchdown by James Mendoza, a 5-yard run, and a 37-yard PAT kick by Shahin Marzband after an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the Mariners.

Achziger scored on runs of 18 and 5 yards in the first half, with the latter rush occurring with 47 seconds remaining in the first half to help the Gaels tie the score at 13. He also connected with Major Stelly on a 40-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. Achziger finished with 110 yards rushing and 114 yards passing.

The Mariners held a 7-0 lead in the first quarter after a 31-yard scoring run by Jordan Jabson, who rushed for 83 yards in the game. Teammate Michael Truong had 85 yards on the ground and a 32-yard touchdown run of his own in the second quarter.
