Summary by Bob Ashby:
After trailing the Aves (0-7) early in the contest, West running back David Afari, reeled off four consecutive touchdowns, three by rushes and a fourth on a 50-yard pass play.  These TD’s along with Josh Laines 4 extra point kicks accounted for all the Firebirds winning score.  Afari gained 187 yards rushing (8.1 yds./carry) for the night.  Lakota District football history was made as Mitch Bolden became the first Frosh to play a complete game at the quarterback position.  Bolden guided the Firebirds offense for the entire 36 minutes they were on the field with ball possession.  In that span, he teamed up with David Afari to produce on a 50-yard pass play for Wests third score.  In all, he passed for a team-high 84 yards.  Garren Carter and Noah Smith were credited with team-highs of 8 tackles each.
