On October 4, Fossil Ridge High School destroyed Horizon High School, with a final score of 7-0. Fossil looked calm and collected throughout the entire game. The Sabercats tore through the Hawks defensive line, and dominated the midfield so strongly, Fossils defense started to look bored.

The first twenty minutes of the game started off relatively slowly. Fossil had control of the play but was struggling to put the ball in the back of the net. 22 minutes into the game, Nathan Bergerson scored the first goal. Just four minutes later, the Sabercats scored again off of a penalty kick. With the score now 2-0 with 19 minutes left in the first half, the Sabercats radiated certainty with themselves and their teammates. Then, with only 10 minutes left in the half, Bergerson scored a header goal.

Starting the second half with a 3-0 lead, the Sabercats never seemed to break a sweat. Just nine minutes into the half, Tyler Hause scored on a penalty kick. Seven minutes later, Cray Carlton sent the ball flying into the back of the net. Twenty minutes went by of Fossil dominating play. They passed around the Hawks with ease and managed to score another goal. The final score of the match was 7-0. Congratulations Sabercats.
