In game 3, the Falcons kept their control and led wire-to-wire, even though the Saints chipped away and never felt out of it. It was just tough for the Saints to get good swings on the ball as Marzolf and Rindels were incredible defensively. They blocked well, and made it difficult on the Saints' offense to take a 25-19 win.
Fillmore Central took a lead right away, but the Saints battled back. Trailing 10-4, St. Charles came back and tied it up at 11, trying to force a 5th game.
