Final: Cactus 70, Bradshaw Mountain 49
I don't know the last time I went to a game that was this high scoring. Cactus's offense couldn't be stopped. The 28 point 2nd quarter for the Cobras was the difference. They blocked a punt for a score and recovered an onside kick that led to a score in that 2nd quarter.
QB Mahal Lee, RB Damaria Norris and WR Matt Eberhardt scored multiple TDs for the Cobras.
The didn't win but Bradshaw Mountain QB Gunner Bundrick deserves some recognition. He threw 7 TDs passes and Timmy Young had multiple scores for the Bears.
