Hopewell’s best offensive series came at the start of the second quarter. The Titans were moving the ball down the field and attempted a pass inside Indy’s ten yard line. Patriots’ defensive back Zach Repak picked off the pass and returned it for what appeared to be a touchdown. The play was called back due to a block in the back, and Indy took over on their own 33 yard line.

After taking a 21-0 lead with 1:35 to go in the first half, Coach Natoli started using his time outs to control the clock. And once again the Indy defense forced the Titans to punt with less that a minute to play.
