Houser led the way with 137 yards on 7 carries- scoring twice, Stauffer had 131 yards on 9 carries with two TD's and Ruby ran for 106 yards in 7 carries- with one TD.
Big plays came from Lane Ruby on a 60 yard TD run for their first score, Houser had TD runs of 24 and 82 yards, and Stauffer running scores were from 1 and 33 yards. Dalton Chaffin added a 4 yard run.
