However mistackles from the linebackers allowed Monroe to regain a 14-6 lead. In the second, mistackles from the special teams allowed Monroe good field positioning as they increased the lead to 29-6. With issues on the offensive and defensive line, Monroe would have control of the lead throughout the remainder of the game, despite a late pick six from #7 Alexis Herrera
Final Score: 43-12
