Happy homecoming.

The win wrapped GAC Central play with the Blue Jays at least second in the league standings, pending the Panthers Week 8 result at home against Wentzville Liberty.

The Blue Jays raced out to a 21 lead with the first three scores. The Lions and Washington each traded two more scores before the half as Washington carried a 34-13 lead into halftime.

Washington activated the continuous clock late in the third quarter, ending the period with a 48-13 lead. FZE scored a final touchdown on the last play.

The Blue Jays finish the regular season in Week 9 at Francis Howell Central.
