But Marshall's Marcellus Davis wasn't having any of that, by answering with a 68 yard touchdown run followed by a Schay Reichwein extra point, ending all scoring in the first half.
After the break, Stevens had two touchdown passes by Chris Jones from Kevin Brashears in the third quarter with Jackson Schrom adding the two extra points, putting the Falcons at 28. Stevens had one more Chris Jones 8 yard touchdown from quarterback Kevin Brashears but unable to get the extra point, bringing the Stevens Falcons to the game ending score of 34. I will say, the wind was pretty bad that evening.
