Olathe East 29, Lawrence Free State 20
This game came as a bit of a surprise, but after looking at the box score it makes sense why Olathe East came out on top. Lawrence Free State, the more seasoned of the two squads, committed five turnovers, four of which came on interceptions. Firebird quarterback Camren Torneden passed for 151 yards, and rushed for 62 yards and two touchdowns, but ultimately the three interceptions he threw hurt the Firebirds quite a bit. Olathe East fed off the turnovers and played a very disciplined game in coming out on top.
