Kevin Johnson helped seal the win, pulling down a crucial interception in the fourth quarter.

East County 37, Walnut Creek 6
Kenneth Walker and Caleb Moravec proved too much for Walnut Creek to handle, physically dominating the action against the Marauders. Walker made a pair of incredible receptions in which he out-jumped the defender for the ball; then simply ran over his would-be tacklers. He also made a sensational, if not comical, defensive play - literally taking the ball out of the hands of the Walnut Creek kick returner before running the ball all the way back for a touchdown. Moravec eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark, pounding the ball through the Walnut Creek defense. Leading tacklers Austin Perry, Chris Gutierrez and Ryan Howell each had dominant performances on the defensive side of the ball.
