Heartland had a salty first half. Â Tyler Brown scored the first touchdown of the game with a 12 yard run with 7:52 left in the 1st quarter to put Heartland up 6-0. Â The first half would go back and forth and was tied 14-14 with 3:02 left in the 2nd quarter. Â Shelby would take advantage of a long pass and a penalty on Heartland to, then, throw a 10 yard pass with no time remaining in the half to take a 14-22 lead and put Shelby on top to head into the third quarter.
Then, the second half, Heartland came back fighting. Â Quarterback, Jordan Heinrichs, would run in a 23 yard touchdown to cut the Shelby lead to two, 20-22. Â Heartland would strike again as Tyler Brown scored another touchdown this time with a 43 yard run to give Heartland a 28-22 lead with 7:56 remaining in the 3rd quarter.
