vs

Despite taking the lead early in the first quarter through Cody Latimer's reception touchdown from Paxton Lynch, Orlando Guardians were to fall 6-24 down by the fourth quarter as Houston Roughnecks rattled off three touchdowns and two field goals in a 24-point scoring streak. Jontre Kirklin and Deontay Burnett both catching touchdown passes from Brandon Silvers and a 27-yard Max Borghi rushing TD left Orlando with a mountain to climb with 10 minutes remaining. Andrew Jameil caught a Quinten Dormady pass for a touchdown to reduce the deficit, but the game was put beyond doubt after Cole McDonald's five yard rushing Touchdown with three minutes to go. H Duplessis added a third field goal for Houston near the end as the Roughnecks finished the game 33-12 winners.
