Coming into their first playoff game in 25 years, the Royals are fired up and ready for the opening kickoff. Prince George elected to receive which led to the Deep Run Wildcats kicking the ball away.

On their first drive, the Royals managed to keep the drive alive with a Wildcat face mask penalty around midfield. They were not able to capitalize after that as they went three and out and punted it away.

The Wildcats could not be stopped on offense. With every possession they got in the first half, they took it to the house for seven.

Prince George sparked some momentum as sophomore quarterback Tahir Johnson scored a touchdown on a quarterback scramble making it 29-6. They went for two but failed. This left the Royals with little time to do anything else in the half since there was only 31 seconds left in the half.

Deep Run came right back on the field with 30 seconds left trying to score at least a field goal. The Wildcats kicker had a big foot, making a 50 yard field goal in warmups.

As Deep Run went deep on ball thrown down the middle, senior safety Arthur Pine read it perfectly and swooped in for the interception. He ran it back 30 yards but got tackled as time expired.

The second half was all Wildcats as they went on to win 49-6. This concludes the historic season that the football team was on.
