|The JV Cougars domination of the Vikings began from the very first play from scrimmage and continued throughout the entire night. Michael Cherry caused an Everett fumble and Griffin Hotchkiss scooped and scored from 40 yards out and LC found themselves up 8-0 within the first 30 seconds of the game. The defensive line of Cherry, Noah Knippen and Mason Abbott completely controlled the line of scrimmage for the next 2 Everett offensive series allowing the Cougar offense to steady some early ineffectiveness. The offensive line gave QB Zach Gillespie plenty of time to find receivers all night and that he did. The Cougars started their next possession at their own 24 yard line. After two Sam Edwards runs brought the ball to near midfield, the Cougars benefited from a pass interference call and had the ball at the 39 of Everett. Gillespie found Nylander for a beautiful catch and run and the Cougars lead grew to 16-0. The ensuing kickoff was a perfectly executed onside kick by Jacob Maloney and was recovered by Edwards but the Cougars were unable to capitalize and the quarter ended.
The second quarter brought about no change for the Viking offense as they were unable to mount any kind of sustained drive. Lansing Catholic took over on their own side of midfield and after consecutive slant passes to Nathan Wilcox and Hotchkiss covered about 45 yards the Cougars found themselves on the Viking 11. At the 8:49 mark Gillespie hit Nylander for another TD pass and the lead expanded to 24-0. Everett then responded with their only real score of the game with a 75 yard kickoff return for TD and for a moment it looked like it may be a competitive game. The Cougars dashed those hopes with an immediate response on the next drive with a 65 yard bomb from Gillespie to Hotchkiss and before Everett was done celebrating their own score they were again down 22 points 30-8. After the Vikings again failed to advance the ball, LC took over and Hotchkiss streaked past an Everett defender and caught another Gillespie pass for a 50 yard TD. After the successful 2 point conversion, the lead was 38-8 and the only detail left was what the final score would be.
The opening drive after halftime again lead to another Cougar TD. A beautiful 33 yard option play to Nylander was followed by a 27 yard QB keeper by Gillespie for the final LC tally. Will Gruber converted the 2 point conversion and LC lead 46-8. Everett was able to produce a late TD to make the final score 46-14.
