Quentin Lindsey and Andrew Davis combined for big nights for the Cobras. Lindsey ran the ball 22 times for 268 yards and 6 touchdowns, while Davis carried the ball 20 times for 235 yards and four touchdowns. HS Lakeside QB Mitchell Scott threw 5 TD passes on the night for the Rams.
One thing is for sure, if you like offensive production, this was a game that had plenty of it. A power run team versus a spread passing team, with the running team coming out on top.
