The second half started with three unanswered touchdowns by Friday Harbor, which went ahead 34-20.

The Pirates came back and scored with a 50-yard pass play to Starr.

Again Friday Harbor answered with a touchdown to lead 40-26.

Refusing to give up, the Pirates scored early in the fourth quarter bringing  the score to 40-32.

The Pirates attempted an onside kick, which was successfully recovered by Owen Brenno, leading to a Pirate touchdown and the final 40-38 score.

The close game marked the end of the season and the final game for seniors Elliott Ellingsen, Jacob Ludberg and Kevin Thomas.
