After Goodwin scored on the Dodgers first possession on a four yard run, Layton Lassiter took one in from 65 yards out to put Madison up 14-0.

The Madison defense followed the long touchdown, with a three-and-out of the Hanover Park offense. On the Dodger's ensuing possession, Goodwin capped a seven play drive with a one yard touchdown run to put Madison ahead 21-0. This drive started a sequence of five consecutive drives where both teams scored a touchdown.

"Our offensive line did great and our defense played well, leading to the victory," Goodwin said.

The Hornets followed immediately with a two-play drive that ended in s 38-yard touchdown pass from Matt Hoberman to Jaquill Scott. 

Goodwin responded for the Dodgers with his third rushing touchdown of the game, a five yard run up the middle to make it a three score game.

Hoberman answered with another touchdown pass, a 34-yard try to Anthony Bessolino, where the receiver out jumped the Dodger defense at the 4-yard line and walked into the end zone untouched.

Down 29-14, the Hornet defense surrendered a 44-yard passing touchdown from Madison quarterback Clayton Lassiter to Goodwin putting the score up to 37-14 going into halftime.

"Carson gave me a good ball," Goodwin said.

Hanover Park cut the deficit to 37-20 on their first possession of the second half when running back John Cordovano ran up the middle. However, the Madison offense scored on their next three possessions, without allowing the Hornets to score.

"We give (Hanover Park) credit because (the Hornets) didn't give up," Goodwin said. "They kept fighting. We give them our respect."

Carson Lassiter scored from one yard out, Goodwin put seven points up on his fourth rushing score of the game, this time from around the right end for 62 yards, and Layton Lassiter scored his second touchdown from 30 yards away. As the score jumped to 57-20 Madison, the Dodger defense forced two punts and a turnover on downs to seal the victory.

"Our offensive line is great," Goodwin said.  "They block down field. They're always getting on their guys and making holes for me, Carson (Lassiter), Shone (Register), Layton (Lassiter)."

Kickoff time is yet to be determined for their semi-final game against Bernards.
