The first quarter opened with Dayton scoring in the first two minutes of the game on a seven-yard run by Marcus Fails. The extra point by Jeff Hubbard failed and Dayton led 6-0. With a minute left in the first quarter, Bruce Peters ran in from four yards out and Dayton was up 12-0. The Enforcers scored with 55 seconds left in the quarter when Jamie Barnes caught a 23-yard pass from quarterback Anthony Duckett. The PAT was good by Pavel Polochanin.
Dayton continued with a second quarter. Halfway through the quarter, Evan Sawyer scored on a 1-yard run. Jeff Hubbard added the PAT and Dayton led 19-7. With 5:18 to play in the half, Trey Jackson recorded a safety and the Silverbacks were up 21-7. The first half scoring closed with 4:07 remaining on Sawyer's 23-yard run.
