After resuming play, the Wild refused to look back and fired on all cylinders, scoring touchdowns and forcing turnovers to extend the lead to 39-13 at the end of the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, the Omaha Beef showed signs of life again but each punch was answered with another big play for the Wild. Finally, the game was iced after Derby High School and Friends University product, Dan Kontz, caught an interception and returned it for the final Wild touchdown.
