Eastbrook (13-2) scored first on a quarterback keeper from Dylan Bragg in the second quarter.

Benson equalized things at 7-7 with a nine-yard pass from Spencer Wright.

Bragg put the Panthers up 14-7 with another run late in the half before freshman kicker Elliott Young added a field goal to cut the Eastbrook advantage to 14-10 at the half.

On the first play from scrimmage in the second half, Wright connected with Benson for a  56-yard scoring strike to give the Stars the lead at 17-14.

The next possession for WeBo resulted in another score from the Wright to Benson.  This time from 25 yards out.

Benson would finish with nine grabs for 159 yards and four touchdowns.
