North Jackson received the opening kickoff but failed to get a first down and lined up to punt.  However, the snap sailed over Andrew Darnell's head and he recovered for a 22 yard loss, and turning the ball over to the Bucks in great field position at the North Jackson 13 yard line.  From there, the Bucks scored in two plays.  Kenneth Allison scored on a 16 yard pass from William Stiles and Austin Benson kicked the PAT to put the Bucks on top 7-0 with 9:28 to go in the first quarter.

Buckhorn kicked off and the ball was headed out of bounds but an alert Buck recovered the ball before it went out, giving Buckhorn the ball again.  However, the Bucks turned the ball over on downs at the North Jackson 28 yard line and the Chiefs took over there.

North Jackson covered the 72 yards in 7 plays as Kade Abbott scored on a 2 yard run.  Cade Bellamy kicked the PAT to tie the game at 7-7 with 4:47 remaining in the first quarter.

Buckhorn then drove to take the lead and scored a TD on a 39 yard run by Matthew Evans on the final play of the first quarter.  Again Austin Benson tacked on the PAT to give the Bucks a 14-7 lead to start the second quarter.

North Jackson punted on its first possession of the second quarter and Buckhorn drove to another score.  Again it was Kenneth Allison who scored the TD on a 41 yard pass from William Stiles.  Benson's kick made it 21-7 with 5:58 to go in the second quarter.

North Jackson got the ball on the 20 on the ensuing kickoff and started on offense there.  Going 80 yards in 9 plays, the Chiefs scored their final TD on a 1 yard run by Donjea Hutchins.  Cade Bellamy added the PAT to cut the lead to to 21-14 with :46 left in the second quarter.

Buckhorn got the ball first in the second half and drove to another score, this time on a 20 yard pass from William Stiles to Kenneth Allison.  The PAT failed making the score 27-14 with 9:06 to go in the third quarter.

Despite recovering two fumbles and intercepting a Buckhorn pass, the Chiefs never really threatened again in the game.  Buckhorn did score two more times.  Dolphus Harris scored on a 21 yard run for the Bucks late in the third quarter but the kick failed once again for a 33-14 lead with 3:09 to go in the third quarter.

Buckhorn's final score came late in the game as QB William Stiles sneaked it over from a yard out for the TD.  The PAT kick was good for the final 40-14 margin.

With the loss, North Jackson finishes the season with a 2-8 record.
