The Dragons scored the only touchdown of the 4th quarter and converted on a 2 point conversion to take a 36-29 lead. They were able to stop Hightower and forced a punt.  They took over with 4:42 left in the game.  The Dragons then were able to make several first downs and run out the clock for the win.
