The Boston Militia proceeded to march down field in 4 plays and Adrienne Smith scored on a 13 yard pass from Allison Cahill. The snap for the extra point was misfired and Danielle Resha picked up the ball and ran around the right side for a 2 point conversion and a Militia 8-0 led early in the first quarter.
