Following a Tigers punt, Cyrus Zuell scored on a 27-yard run, and with the point after, made it 9-0.
Harris County was forced to punt again on its next possession. Veterans scored again following. This time it was via a 21-yard touchdown pass from Quarterback Sebastian Verger to Javon Singletary. That made it 16-0, which is where it stood after a quarter.
Julian Barnes, with a 27-yard run, made it 23-0. Verger appeared to add to it a little bit later, but his 74-yard run was called back.
Verger and Singletary did combine to make it 30-0, when the latter caught a short swing pass from the first and took it 75 yards for the score.
Finally, with about two minutes left to play, Harris County prevented the shut out with a 36-hard touchdown pass.
