The next play, #35 Monterrozo rush in on a QB keeper. However, the Knights could not convert on the 2 pt PAT and went into the 2nd quarter down to the Lightning 7-6. In the 2nd quarter, #35 Phillip Monterrozo scored his second of three Touchdown as the BCYL Knights went into the halftime leading 12-7.
The second half of the game was the BCYL displaying total dominance on the defensive side of the football. Even when the Lightning looked to get a drive started towards the end zone. The Knights defense would cause the Lightning to turn over on downs. In the 4th quarter, #35 Monterrozo got to the outside and on a 70 plus yard Touchdown run. QB #10 Daquandre Taylor hit #22 Dashawn Bartee on a short pass for the 1 point PAT to put the game out of reach for the Lunenburg Lightning Varsity team. The BCYL Varsity Knights defeated the Lunenburg Varsity team 19-7 to win the 2013 JRSYSA Super Bowl Champions.
