In the fourth quarter, the Knights came back strong raising the score to 52-36. But the Griffins continued to play strong, scoring a touchdown and a successful two point conversion. With 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Griffins passed the ball into the endzone, bringing the score to 52-50.
