Batavia was first on the board, with a 53-yard Terrez Smith touchdown run. HFL quickly added six, as quarterback Reece Joint connected with Colton Green. Blue Devils took the eight-point lead as quarterback Jesse Reinhart connected with Evan Cummings for the 14-yard score. Patrick Lustyk caught an 18-yard pass from Joint for the second touchdown of the game for the Cougars, but a successful two-point conversion tied things up at 14.
Tied at 21 in the second quarter, the Cougars got hot and never looked back. They were able to score three more touchdowns before the Blue Devils found the end zone again with just under eight minutes left to play.
