Senior Tijuan Green had a combined 216 rushing and receiving yards to go with 3 touchdowns to lead the offense on a 443 yard offensive night. The Eagle defense kept the opponent out of the endzone for the second consecutive week as the only Demon score came on a kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter.
After the defense forced a Demon punt after 3 plays to open the game, Senior QB Marques Ivory led the Eagle O on an 9-play, 61 yard drive that culminated in a 19 yard TD pass from Ivory to Green. Ivory had the best night of his career by completing 13 of 20 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore kicker Devon Pike was good on the PAT attempt and Northside lead the City Championship game 7-0 with 6:52 left in the first quarter.
The next 3 possessions of the game saw the Demons punt 2 more times and the Eagles miss a FG attempt after a 51 yard drive.

Pike's perfect PAT made the score 14-0. The Demons punted on their next 2 drives and the Eagles had their next drive end with a interception near the Demon endzone, and the teams went into the half with the score still 14-0.
The Eagles took the 2nd half kickoff and drove 65 yards in 6 plays and were in the endzone again after a Green took a direct snap from center and rambled 22 yards for a TD.
