On the very first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, Hatfield took a snap ran to his left, cut back to his right weaving in and out of traffic and breaking a number of tackles on his way to a 55-yard touchdown to give Herbert Hoover a 35-27 lead with 11:31 to play.

Dalton hooked up with Mullins for a second touchdown, this one from 15-yards out to cut the deficit to 42-33 with 0:50 remaining after a failed two-point conversion attempt.
