The third quarter opened with Crawford running for daylight for a 65-yard score and Miller and Springer connected again to make it 24-6 heading into the final period.

Springer handled the final score on a 15-yard trip and Miller’s pass to Angel Lara made the final 32-12.

According to coaches, linemen Patrick Dean, Angel Banca, Jason Wilson and Dylan David were the standouts.
