          Millikin went up 15-0 with four minutes left in the first quarter on a double pass play.  Holmes threw a backward pass behind the line of scrimmage to Tobey who then connected with freshman wide receiver #Sean Maloney# on a 54 yard touchdown pass.

          Millikin started to take control of the game in the third quarter.  The Big Blue defense stopped North Park on all four possessions in the quarter.  The Millikin offense then got in gear scoring on a 13 yard pass from Holmes to senior #Jake Palmer# who did a nice job fighting through the defender to make the catch.

          Millikin opened up a 29-10 advantage on a 20 yard touchdown run by senior #Tyler Roush# early in the fourth quarter.

          The Millikin defense played well in the second half and the Big Blue's #Wesley Beach# gave the scored two points after recording a safety when he tackled North Park quarterback Tyler Krebs in Viking end zone.  The Vikings were pinned deep in its own end after #Grant Shreve#'s punt was downed at the Viking five yard line.
