The playoff scenario is simple for both La Porte and CE King, the winner earns a playoff berth and the loser is on the outside looking in, and it’s our game of the week…
La Porte gets on the scoreboard first, as Bulldogs quarterback River Thompson lets it fly for Elijah George, and George pulls it down and gets into the end zone, it’s a 36-yard touchdown, 7-0 Bulldogs.
CE King answers on the ground. Malique Harris takes the handoff, shoots through a tiny hole, and runs 26 yards before he’s finally brought down inside the 30 yard line.
A few plays later, Kobe Barrett caps off the scoring drive with a short touchdown run to even things up at 7 apiece.
In the 2nd, La Porte’s Makai Hisatake (Muh-kye Hiss-uh-tock-ee) gets the carry and he runs it right up the gut and into the end zone for a 10 yard touchdown run, Bulldogs back in front 14-7.
But the Panthers march right back down the field and Harris punches it in for a 2 yard touchdown, it’s tied up again 14-14.
Then it’s CE King’s defense stepping up, Will Evans applies the pressure for the big sack on 3rd down to force a punt.
With time winding down in the 2nd half, Kameron Kinchon launches deep for Bryson Washington, and the Oklahoma Sooners commit catches it in the end zone, it’s a 31-yard scoring strike and CE King leads 21-14 at halftime.
Same score in the 4th, Kinchon bobble the snap but stays composed and connects with Geonnie Norman (like Gianni), it’s a 13-yard touchdown pass, and CE King is postseason bound, as the Panthers beat La Porte, 28-14 is the final.
