He had three touchdowns as he ran his way to more than 175 yards rushing. The Lancer quarterback scored the first touchdown of the game, and that is all Belleville East needed as they shutout a mistake ridden Edwardsville offense. Three fumbles and one interception hurt the Tigers' chance of getting on the board.
Quarterback Mason McBride was a bright spot. He had several long and important runs to get the Tigers close to scoring as well as recovering a couple fumbles. The Lancer defense has only surrendered 15 total points in their three wins of 2010. The Southwestern Conference has three teams at 3-0- Belleville East, Belleville West and East St. Louis.

Webster Groves v. SLUH
Number 4 ranked Webster Groves got off to a fast start by scoring a touchdown on their first drive, with the key play being a 53 yard run by quarterback Marquis Clemons. The defending Missouri Class 5 Champions rotated quarterbacks all night between Clemons and Rayshawn Simmons. Both were effective from the ground, as well as through the air.

The Jr. Bills relied upon the passing game for most of the game as Quarterback Trevor McDonagh put the ball in the air 41 times and completing 24 for 358 yards. The 7 SLUH turnovers (4 intercepted passes and three fumbles) made it very difficult for them to stay in the game despite an offense that moved the ball very well. Stefan Sansone lead the Jr. Bills in receiving with 13 catches for 164 yards, while middle linebacker Jason Meehan was a major force on defense for the Statesmen with 2 interceptions, 2 sacks and 11 tackles. Statistically, the game was much closer than the final score of 31 to 14.
