WHITE HOUSE — Pearl-Cohn used a 27-point second quarter to roll past White House 41-3, spoiling the Blue Devils’ attempt to avenge last season’s playoff loss.
White House (4-4, 1-3 5-4A) started the game with an impressive defensive stand, keeping Pearl-Cohn out of the end zone despite a first-and-goal from the 6-yard line. White House also forced Pearl-Cohn to turn the ball over on downs twice in the first quarter.
But Pearl Cohn (4-4, 4-0) showed how quickly it could change the game, scoring 20 points in just under five minutes to take a 34-0 halftime lead.
“We competed well in the first quarter, and I thought our intensity was good at the start of the game,” White House coach Jeff Porter said. “There’s just no way in practice to simulate what you’re going to see out here and that was a huge adjustment for us.”
