The Sun didn't waste any time scoring 7 touchdowns in the 1st half alone. It started with Mike O'Shea returning a punt for a touchdown followed by Jevon Garwood scoring off a screen pass extending the lead to 13-2. Dominic Britton would throw another TD pass to Colby Milleto shortly after the Sun defense created a turnover to make it 20-3. Mike O'Shea would score his 2nd TD of the game after Quarterback Dominic Britton threw a 20 yard shot to the corner of the Rebels endzone to make it 27-3.

Jevon Garwood would rush up the middle for his second score of the night extending the lead. The Sun defense would make some big plays including a strip fumble from linebacker Romario Reid which would be recovered by Aiden Hennessey and returned for a touchdown. Wide receiver Blaise Beauchemin would catch not just one but two touchdown passes to complete Dominic Britton's 5 passing touchdown night.
