After getting out to a 7-0 lead following a 13 yard Round Rock punt in the 1st quarter, Vandegrift would score on the first play of the 2nd quarter on a 12 yard out route by North Texas commit Miles Coleman, for his 9th touchdown of the season.
Vandegrift would get the ball back minutes later and quickly drive down the field and score a touchdown making it 21-0 following a 30 yard screen to Coleman that put the Vipers inside the 10 yard line.
The Dragons offense struggled throughout the contest had to punt and with five minutes left in the half. Coleman turned on the jets, racing through the middle of the field taking the punt back 68 yards for a touchdown, making it 28-0.
