After a scoreless first quarter, Ravenswood (1-0) quarterback Max Hilton found Joe Chambers for a 46-yard scoring pass with 10:52 left in the half. Tanner Snodgress made his first of six successful extra point kicks to give RHS a 7-0 lead.

Exactly 90 seconds later the Red Devils were in the end zone again, this time with a 39-yard Jacob Anthony run. Another 90 seconds went by before Ravenswood increased its lead to 21-0, with Wayne Stephenson scoring on a 39-yard run.

Stephenson found paydirt again with a 19-yard run at the 4:15 mark of the second. Chase Hood got in on the action with 2:02 left in the half, scoring on a 10-yard run and making the margin 35-0 at the break.

Ravenswood scored for the final time with 9:50 to go in the third quarter, when Luke Jackson rumbled into the end zone from 18 yards away.

Wahama (0-1) was led by Brady Bumgarner with 43 yards on nine carries, and Ronin Madill had 25 yards on eight totes.

White Falcons quarterback Abram Pauley was 2-for-6 passing for 26 yards, with Jacob Warth catching a 22-yard pass and Owen Richardson hauling in a four-yard pass.
