The Delta Devils followed up that miscue with another when Amad Murray forced a fumble on Dederrian Williams which was recovered by Stephen F. Austin’s (2-1) Chance Hill. Chris Campos then made a 46-yard field goal for the Lumberjacks.

Myles Brooks later picked off Regan and returned it 14 yards for a 24-3 advantage en route to a 38-13 halftime lead.
