Troup found NyNy Davis on a 55-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter pushed it to 28-0; the kick was no good.

A safety made it 30-0 early in the second, and Troup found Andrew Pierce for a 30-yard pass for a 36-0 lead late in the second; the two-point try was no good.

Ethan Foster's 36-yard run with 4:05 left in the third capped Etowah's scoring. Moody tacked on two fourth-quarter touchdowns when Etowah had removed the starters.
