In a losing effort, Tyler Kelly had the play of the game, taking a kickoff to the house for one of the Blue Giant majors.

The other Blue TD came from running back Carter Dallas, who scored once and picked up big yards behind the blocking of Joseph Salas and Mitchell Price.

Wyatt Stobbs made some touchdown-saving tackles in the open field.

Aiden Parks and Lucas Pollard played great games at cornerback.
