    Summary by Bob Ashby:
    David Afari ran for a game-high 110 yards which included four short power plunges of 1, 3, 3, and 6 yards respectively for touchdowns.  Malcolm Rencher, a State placer in both the long jump and as a sprinter on last springs track team sprinted for a 70 yard TD run with just 3:33 left in the game. His run boosted the score to 33-6 in West’s favor and out of the Big Blues reach.  Starting QB Caleb Rao led the Firebirds out to a 12-6 halftime lead.  That’s where the score stood when Rao was forced to leave the game early in the third quarter with a suspected concussion.  Freshman QB Mitch Bolden stepped behind center and guided three offensive drives, each leading to touchdowns.  Bolden is the only Lakota School District player known to play QB in a varsity game. (1959 to the present)  Issac Kolosk was the Firebirds leading tackler with 8 (4 solo & 3 assisted). These individual highlights provided much of the impetus propelling Coach Tom Bolden to his 77th  consecutive GMC win, his last loss coming back in Oct. 2007.
