|SM East's Elliot Faerber.|
In the third quarter SM East began to seperate themselves. They started with a 68-yard touchdown drive that lasted nine plays and ended with a one-yard touchdown run by Jeff Cole. They scored next when their quarterback, Dakota Collins, hit wide receiver Elliot Faerber on a five-yard touchdown pass to go up 21-3. SM East's final touchdown came on a 22-yard strike from Collins to Faerber midway through the fourth quarter.
In his debut as quarterback, Collins completed 17 of 30 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns for the Lancers. The Illinois-bound Faerber was a matchup nightmare for SM Northwest, as he hauled in two touchdown passes and seeemed to get open on nearly every pass play.
