The Little Hawks started hot when Tyler Hill intercepted a pass inside the Trojans ten yard line three plays later running back Amos Lavela gets in from fourth and inches away, 7-0.
Two drives later Lavela found the end zone again making it 14-0 Little Hawks.
City High tacked on one more score when Jake Leohr found Xavier Washpun for 45 yards making the score 21-0.

Lavela would get his third touchdown of the half, this one from 12 yards away and put the Little Hawks up 35-7 at the break.
The Trojans would play much better in the second half but it was too little too late, City High wins 38-26.
