Kadon Boyce put Kelly Walsh on the board in the 2nd quarter with a 37-yard gallop for a TD and the 2-point try was good to cut the gap to 21-8. Later in the quarter, Drew Jackson recorded his 2nd rushing touchdown of the night, Kolbe Dierks caught a 7-yard TD pass and David Hondel caught a 5-yard touchdown pass. At halftime, East was in command 41-8 and that was pretty much the ballgame.
