METV took control early by returning an interception for a touchdown. As was the case in their earlier meeting, the defense was unable to take care of business and METV took an 18-0 lead.
DEC finally made it a game when they scored just before the half.
Quarterback Max Gornish found wide receiver Elan Noorparvar in the end zone, cutting the deficit to 12 points.
The offense did their part by scoring two more times in the second half. First on a pass to tight end Eli Mirlis...
...and then on a pass to wide receiver Jonah Zisquit.
But in the end, METV was too much for the defense to handle, and the game ended with the disappointing score of 40-18.
