For the second year in a row, the Civil War was winner-take-all in the 2A GSHL.

A wild first quarter saw Zach Tackwell of Mark Morris return a fumble 32 yards for touchdown. A Jeremy Wolf 1 yard touchdown run. As well as a 43 yard touchdown pass from Senior R.A. Long QB Austin Wegdahl to Freshman RB Jacob Yordy.
Mark Morris led 14-7 after 1 quarter and the barn burner was on, or was it?
Things settled down after that, and a scoreless 2nd quarter keep the score 14-7 at the half.
The Monarchs then drove 71 yards in over 6 minutes to start the 3rd quarter. Dan Feeney’s 1 yard touchdown run, along with a 2 point conversion, put Mark Morris up 22-7.
The Lumberjacks could only manage a pair of safeties the rest of the night and fell 22-11 to their cross-town rivals.
