After the ensuing kickoff, officials sent both teams back to their locker rooms because of lightning in the area. On the third play after the delay, McBride found a wide-open Will Trotter, who easily sprinted into the end zone to make it 14-7.
The rest of the quarter featured a comedy of kicking-game errors. North's Justin Martin blocked a Del City punt, but the Timberwolves went three-and-out and had a bad snap on their punt attempt, giving Del City the ball at the Norman North 15.
The Eagles had first-and-goal at the 5, but a third-down snap went over McBride's head and the Timberwolves blocked a 32-yard field-goal attempt by Cayne Shaw.
Del City tied the game on McBride's 1-yard touchdown run with 8:19 left in the third quarter, capping a 59-yard drive.
