Andale rushed for 595 yards and blasted the Orioles 73-6. Andale put up 34 points in the first quarter and 23 more in the second for a 57-0 halftime lead. Hunter Knoblauch had a 71-yard touchdown run on the game's first play from scrimmage. Knoblauch later scored on a 65-yard TD run.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Chase Hull put up Augusta's only points on the scoreboard with a one-yard touchdown run. Chaydon Carter led the team with 42 yards on eight carries. Hull had 15 yards, Jaden Shryock had one rush for 12 yards.
Tristan Finch completed just 1 of 7 seven passes for 10 yards. Dustyn McEachern came in late and completed 5 of 14 passes for 76 yards. Connor Hurst led the Orioles with 48 yards on two receptions.
Hurst and Caleb Faulconer tied for the team-high with six tackles.
Augusta will try to bounce back with a home game against Ark City next Friday for Homecoming.
