The Sentinels continued to throw on their next possession but the drive ended in a 60-yard interception return for a score by Keith Davis to cut the lead to 35-6.

Marsay Howard picked off a pass on Fort Hill’s first drive of the fourth. That set-up a three-yard score by Joe Kalsek to make it 35-12. Cody Dolly piled on with a six-yard run with 2:18 remaining.
