Logan Milburn and Nathan Strietbeck were the Black team’s standouts. Milburn, of Braddock, was named the Black’s offensive MVP and Strietbeck, of Ridgeley, was the defensive MVP.

Yommer scored on a 40-yard run in the first quarter and the Red took control of the game with a 24-point second period.
