Canfield would storm out in front in the second quarter, outscoring the Falcons 17-5 in the frame to lead 28-15 at half.

After dealing with a 5-0 run by the Falcons to open the second half to cut the lead to eight, the Cardinals controlled the game the rest of the night and celebrated senior night with a victory.
