Wesson went into the game perfect on their home turf and was hoping to stay the same, but the Mize Bulldogs had expectations of ruining those Cobra hopes.
Mize received the opening kickoff and started their first drive from their own 45-yard line. They quickly got on the scoreboard as after only a few plays into the drive, their running back broke loose and scored on a 39-yard touchdown run. The extra point was good, and Mize was quickly up 7-0.
