Following a Green Wave fumble on the game’s first play from scrimmage, Andrew Steinle scored the first of his three touchdowns on the night, a 15-yard run before booting the point after attempt. After another North Delta fumble on its second series, fullback Walker Coleman bulldozed his way into the end zone for a five-yard touchdown run to cap a three-play, 28-yard drive for a 14-0 General lead. Adam Gober closed out the first period with a one-yard plunge to give Washington a 21-0 cushion.

Things did not get any better for North Delta in the second quarter as two more turnovers led to a pair of touchdowns as Washington took a 40-0 halftime lead. Steinle finished the night with six carries for 114 yards, scoring on runs of 43 and 40 yards. Coleman added the final touchdowns of the game with a two-yard run late in the half.

Washington (3-0) finished the game with 279 yards of total offense. Senior quarterback Blake Rounsavell completed five-of-seven passes for 95 yards, all of which came in the first half.

North Delta (2-1) mustered only 46 total yards of offense on five first downs. Hunter Baker registered 23 yards on four carries to lead the Green Wave in rushing. Quarterback Skyler  Lawson completed 3-of-7 passes for 22 yards but was intercepted three times in the game.
