West 33, North 20

Stanley Dubard carried 16 times for 149 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Vikings to a non-league victory.

The Stars answered with a 25-yard rushing touchdown by running back Davis Reyes, but the Vikings retaliated on their next drive as Boyd scored on a pitch from 11 yards.

After a three-and-out for North, the Vikings scored on a 4-yard rushing touchdown for Dubard and led 27-7 at halftime.

North tried to rally in the fourth with help from Steven Twiss, who had 140 passing yards, 87 rushing yards and a touchdown. The Stars scored two touchdowns in the final quarter, including one by Twiss, but couldn't stop Vikings offense from running out the clock.
