GIBSONTON — Despite the statistics indicating a closer game, King beat East Bay handily in a district matchup.
East Bay (1-6, 0-2) had more first downs, total yards and fewer penalties, but lost big in the turnover category. They put the ball on the ground twice and threw an interception in the first quarter. The Lions (6-2, 1-1) turned each into a touchdown.
The Lions offense was led by Greg Windham, who went 12-for-18 passing for 159 yards. On the opening drive of the second half, Windham connected on passes of 21, 38 and 10 yards, the last a strike to Kim Jackson for a touchdown and a 40-13 lead.
