Quarterback Elias Allan threw for one touchdown and ran for two more. JP Klucik and Uriel Martinez each rushed for touchdowns. Ken Longley scored his first touchdown on a 40-yard reception.

"This was a complete game," said Coach Rich Scanlon. "Lakeside alsways presents some run game problems for our defense and did so again Friday, but, we were able to bend and not break"
