OCS quarterback Jacob Davis scored on a five-yard run to start the scoring on the first drive of the game for the Eagles. Taylor Dawson hit the first of six consecutive PAT kicks to give OCS the early 7-0 advantage.
After OCS stalled the next WSJ drive, Davis again drove the Eagles down the field and closed the drive with a three-yard jaunt and a 14-0 OCS lead.
Davis ran for 77 yards and two touchdwons on 12 carries. He completed 5-of-12 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown compared to three interceptions.
West St. John's Dray Joseph closed the first quarter by getting his team on the scoreboard on a three-yard touchdown run to cut the OCS lead to 14-7 after the first quarter.
OCS wasted little time on their first possession of the second quarter when Dustin Andrews found a seam and ran in the touchdown from four-yards out to give OCS a commanding 21-7 lead.
Andrews led the way in rushing yards for OCS (11-1) with an 82-yard performance on 12 carries with touchdown runs in the second quarter and fourth quarter. Andrews' first score gave OCS a 27-15 lead at halftime.
The two squads traded big passing touchdowns to close out the third quarter after Davis found Glen Marshall for a 20-yard score. West St. John answered on the next possession with a 55-yard bomb from Joseph to Terrance Nathan.
