The Bluejays defense forced Millikin into a three-and-out after the field goal. Elmhurst's offense then drove to the Millikin 23-yard line and Tomis boomed a 40-yard field goal through the uprights to put the Bluejays on top 13-7.

Elmhurst had a chance to add to their lead late in the half after Stephen Ritter intercepted Pippen and brought the ball back to the Millikin 19-yard line, but the Bluejays drive ended with a Millikin interception at the goal line. The Bluejays led 13-7 at the half.
