The Falcons’ defense kept the Redskins out of the end zone with a goal line stop and a couple of three-and-outs.

Alchesay’s Isaiah Kindelay showed off his jets on a 93-yard touchdown run to open up the flood gates as the Falcons’ offensive line took control of the first half. Running back Coll Watchman’s 36-yard touchdown run also got the crowd going.

The Falcons added two more scores before halftime with a Damoni Bahe 13-yard run and Upton’s 1 yarder that put them up 40-0.

Upton got his third score with another 1 yarder in third quarter, giving him 16 TDs this season.

The Redskins got their only score with Bradley Benally scoring on a right sweep plus the two-point conversion. Red Mesa had two touchdowns negated due to penalties. Both drives ended in turnovers on downs for the Falcons.

Bahe’s long touchdown run put the finish touches on a easy victory for the Falcons.

With running lanes opening all night the Falcons feasted on the Redskins with multiple players lighting up the scoreboard.
