• Highlight reel: The Lions scored twice in just eight seconds in the fourth quarter to break open a close game. Pusch Ridge led 19-13 at halftime. The Miners failed to cover a kickoff, and the Lions pounced on it and scored on the next play with 3:11 left in the game.

• Player of the game: Fitzgerald and Reilly powered the offense after senior quarterback Jake Frithsen left the game with an injury in the second quarter.

• By the numbers: 433. The Lions ran for 433 yards.

• He said it: “San Manuel always plays us tough. We were just out of sorts in the first half. We did not play like Pusch Ridge.” — Pusch Ridge coach Troy Cropp
