Cumberland had an answer to Palestine’s touchdown in the second. Titus began a run right at midfield and ended up in the endzone for a 50 yard touchdown run and a 22-7 lead after the successful two point conversion from Yaw.
Cumberland scored one more time before halftime, it was a 60 yard pass from Brody Donsbach to Tyson Magee that put Cumberland up 30-7 at the half.
