Silver Lake 42, Rock Creek 6

By The Mercury

At Silver Lake, Rock Creek scored in the first quarter to trim the Silver Lake lead to 7-6, but would not score again all night as the Eagles’ rolled.

Billed as a showdown between unbeatens, the game did not live up to the hype.

After playing close in the first quarter, Silver Lake went on a scoring tear to lead 29-6 at halftime. They scored 13 more points in the third quarter before calling off the dogs.

Silver Lake outgained Rock Creek on the ground 270-83 and through the air 155-28 in a frustrating game for the Mustangs.

Quarterback Brett Hammett connected with Brandon Lutgen on a 20-yard pass for Rock Creek’s only score.
