Mount Ida was unable to hold onto an early 6-0 lead as the Dierks Outlaws rolled to a 51-14 victory over the visiting Lions Friday night.

Mount Ida started the game at midfield after receiving the opening onside kick. The Lions pushed the ball downfield and scored on a five yard run by Baylor Bates to take a six point lead.

Dierks responded with a quick score and 2-point conversion to take an 8-6 lead. The Outlaws went on to score 45 unanswered points to take a 45-6 lead at the half.

Each team would score a touchdown in the second half as the clock rolled by way of the sportsmanship rule.
