The extra-point, however, was blocked, giving the Mavericks a 6-0 lead.

The Gorillas answered on their next possession as they marched 67 yards on nine plays, capped off with a 6-yard touchdown run by running back Terrance Isaac. Again, the extra-point attempt by Jake Craig was blocked with help from a bad snap from center.
