The first drive of the game was a 16-play, 80-yard drive that took up nearly all of the first quarter. In fact, it took up 9:10 of the block with 11 rushes and five passes.

The West team has outscored the East squad 76-13 during their three-game win streak. The East team has not won since a 14-7 game in 2014.

A reason for the West’s dominance is their defense – and they played stellar defense on Thursday night. They had four interceptions in the game. They took the lead when Mitchell Finnegan scored on a four-yard run for the early lead.

Rory D’Alesandro made it 10-0 with a 27-yard field goal before halftime.

Following the break in the action, Edamiyon Doggett, the game’s MVP, hit Tanner Adamczyk for a 21-yard touchdown. This game the West team a 17-0 lead.

Despite being down, the East had to use a razzle-dazzle trick play to get on the board. Scott Cochrane, who lined up as a wide receiver and listed as a linebacker in the game program, got the ball from the running back, then threw the ball.

He hit Taylor Twamley for a 29-yard touchdown. The lead fell to 17-7, but because this was an All-Star game, immediately after the extra point, the East team received another opportunity to score, as they received the next kickoff. This only happens in All-Star games when teams trail by 10 or more games.

However, the East struggled all night offensively. Miles Fye-Moore ended their chances with the fourth interception of the game.

Late in the contest, Thomeir Richardson scored on a 14-yard rushing touchdown.
