Lubbock Christian hung up 30 points in the third period to break away after taking a 28-21 halftime lead.

Bax Townsend turned in another big night for the Eagles (8-1, 4-1 district) with 360 total yards, 3 touchdowns rushing, 3 passing and 4 two-point conversions. Brady Simmons ran for 86 yards and a pair of scorers and Townsend’s two favorite targets were busy: Karson Leatherwood snagged 4 receptions for 109 yards and a TD, while Connor Lack pulled down 5 passes for 67 yards and two first-half touchdowns.

Max Dement led a suffocating defensive performance that limited Willow Park Trinity (2-6, 2-4) to 140 total yards. He recorded 9 tackles, while Leatherwood contributed 6 and two tackles for loss.

Lubbock Christian is idle this week before closing out the regular season Nov. 5 at home against Fort Worth Lake Country.
