Antelope jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half capped by a 72-yard interception return by Jaevin Braund, but Del Campo controlled the second half tieing the game on a 23-yard Ben Purcell pass to Ray Griffen.
Antelope’s trick half-back 16-yard pass from Daevon Johnson to Ryan McCombs with 3:05 left in the game put the Titans on top to stay.
Del Campo’s final drive stalled after moving 52 yards to Antelope’s 25-yard line when a Ben Purcell pass was ruled an interception, scooped up by Antelope’s Khanii Lesane with just 57-seconds left in the game, allowing Antelope to run out the clock.
