On the very next play, Loy Norrix’s QB fumbled the center exchange and Gull Lake’s linebacker, Riley Eastman, returned the fumble 99-yards for a unbelievable Blue Devil touchdown. Romyak’s 2-pt PAT was good. The Blue Devil defense held firm and forced an interception by junior Noah Blake to seal the victory. Final score Gull Lake 26 Loy Norrix 12.
