The beginning of the second quarter, Topeka High led 14-13. Jaylen Carter then scored another touchdown from an 85 yard kick return, putting the Blues up by 19-14 after a failed attempt at a two point conversion.

In the second half, the Blues scored two more touchdowns in the third quarter, both by Williams. The quarter ended with Washburn leading 38-35, but they could not contain Topeka High’s offense any more.
