We scored to bring it to 12-6. Then Lafayette came back to tie it again. We had one final touchdown in the first half, leading the way at halftime at 18-12. In the second half Lafayette scored again to end regulation time play at 18-18.
Then the over time began. Each team got a chance to score from the 20 yard line. Lafayette was on offense first. Both teams scored a touchdown and the 2 point conversion. Second overtime neither team scored. Third overtime, Lafayette scored a touchdown and the 2 point conversion. Tech scored a touchdown and missed the 2 point conversion.
