The Gorillas scored within the first two minutes of the game and continued to dominate the entire first half, piling on the touchdowns and two-point conversions, going into the half leading 53-0.

Because of the high point margin, the clock kept rolling through the second half, not stopping for incomplete passes or out-of-bounds plays. The Raider defense was able to step up and keep the Gorillas from scoring in the second half, but the Raiders weren't able to get on the board themselves, leaving the final score at 53-0, Davenport.

The 7-3 Lake Roosevelt football season marks the second year in a row the Raiders made it to the first round of state playoffs after many years without a postseason appearance. The 2016 Raiders also finished at 7-3.
