Climate Controllers Player of the Week Cade Maupin gave Elizabethton a 20-0 lead after a quarter of play with a three-yard touchdown.

In the second quarter, Maupin added a four-yard touchdown to the Elizabethton tally, and Jaxton Holly kicked a 37-yard field goal to give EHS a 30-0 lead at the break.

The Cyclones wrapped up the scoring in the third quarter as Bryson Rollins found Jordan Killion for a 28-yard touchdown.
