The offense of the Sabers continued to falter all half. And with under a minute left the Warriors were able to drive down the field and score again. The legs of QB Peoples put the Warriors up 22-0 at the half.
After a few exchanges the Sabers defense came up big with another interception, this time from CB Devane. The offense finally showed life as WR Garner hauls in a TD pass.
