Maple Shade got on the scoreboard in the first quarter when Che Foster rushed for a 4-yard touchdown. The Wildcats used the ground game effectively during their scoring drive. Quarterback Mike Stewart also completed key passes during the first scoring drive of the game. The point after kick would not be successful.

The Quakers got right back into the game quickly when Ken Triboletti rumbled for a 63-yard touchdown. Moorestown took a 7-6 lead which did not last long. The Wildcats took the lead back before the half when Foster got his second running touchdown of the game. He drove for a 3-yard plunge and put Maple Shade up 14-7 after the two-point conversion was successful. Mike Stewart completed a pass to tight end James Johnson for a seven point lead.

Moorestown must have received that inspirational speech from their South Jersey Hall of Fame coach Frank Paris in the haltime locker room. The Quakers defense would not allow Maple Shade to put any more points on the board. Triboletti ran for his second touchdown of the game to tie the score in the third quarter. In the final quarter, Matt Price scored the final touchdown of the game with a 4-yard touchdown run. The Quakers would get two more points when Maple Shade snapped the ball out of the end zone for a safety.
