Calhoun scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the first on a 30-yard pass from quarterback Stan Batten to split end Randy Perkins with 9:10 remaining and moments later on a short run. The Red Devils picked up a two-point conversion after the first tally on a short burst up the middle after Gilmer was,penalized for being of f sides. Gilmer scored at 4:39 of the second quarter on a nine-yard toss from quarterback John Fox to flanker Don Wilson. The extra point conversion failed. The Titans missed two scoring opportunities during the opening minutes of the first period. After a series of running plays which brought them to the Calhoun 40, Fox launched a long pass to Wilson in the corner of the end zone which barely missed. On fourth down. McPherson punted but the ball hit a Calhoun player and Terry 9 Heckert recovered at the 20. Successive running plays failed. however, another potential scoring pass to Wilson slipped off the receiver's fingertips. Calhoun took over deep in their own territory and marched upfield on off-tackle slants and quarterback options to Gilmer's 28. There. with a first down, Batten hit Perkins for 15 yards and then connected with slotback Fred Hannah for a touchdown which was called back due to an illegal procedure penalty. The Titan defenders stiffened and on fourth down Batten was sacked by Doug Skinner and Danny Smith. Gilmer and Calhoun battled to a standoff early in the second qaurter until, from the Gilmer 23, Jerry McPherson bolted to midfield, break- ing several tackles. Two illegal procedure penalties stalled the Titans until Fox hit end Mike Minney with a 27-yd. strike. The ball was tipped by a Calhoun defender but Minney grabbed it before being hauled down on the Red Devil 21.

Gilmer tried desperately to catch up with their passing game but with 2:32 remaining, in a fourth and one yard situation, an incomplete pass spelled the end for the Titans. Both teams racked up over 100 yards in penalties. Smith's injury at first thought serious, turned out to be a bruise. Defensive stalwart Robert Alltop sustained a hand iniury during the game and tests were to be made to determine if there were any broken bones. Fox passed two of 15 for 37 yards. The Titans only registered 51 yards rushing. 36 of which were picked up by halfback McPherson on nine attempts.

After another pass interference call against Calhoun, Fox passed to Wilson in the end zone for the Titans only tally. The Titans recovered the ensuing kickoff at Calhoun's 46 but failed to move the ball against a stubborn Red" Devil defense. A short Gilmer punt gave Calhoun possession at the Titan 45 but Gilmer's lugged defense and several penalties stalled the Red Devils. Titan linebacker Danny Smith left the game with a bruised shoulder after a crunching tackle on Batten during that series. II Calhoun recovered a Gilmer fumble during the next series of downs at the Titan 33. After Minney dumped Batten on a second down pass attempt. a fight broke out between Doug Skinner and Fred Hannah. Both players were eiected from the contest by officials and, seconds later, Burl Green recovered a Red Devil fumble. Another short punt on fourth down gave Calhoun the ball on Gilmer's 42. Shortly afterwards, Mike Minney was ejected from the game by officials who called a "'spearing" or personal foul tackling penalty against the Titan flanker.
