They scored two second-half touchdowns, the first on a 23-yard pass to Chris Bell and a 74-yard pass to Williams with 9:17 to go in the game.
Williams finished the game with 81 yards on three receptions, but it was too much to overcome a 42-7 deficit.

The 67-yarder tied the game on the first play following the Parrots score. His 17-yarder came early in the second quarter to put Pinkston up 21-7.
The last score of the half came on a 50-yard interception return by Aaron Ceasar with 5:41 to play.
Poly had a chance to score just before the half as it drove to the Pinkston 6, but a penalty and two incomplete passes stalled the drive.
