Throughout the game, both teams traded touchdowns and field goals, with Parker Crum leading Duchesne’s offensive charge. His multi-dimensional contributions, including passing and rushing touchdowns, proved pivotal in securing the win. Despite Summit Academy’s determined efforts, Duchesne’s final touchdown pass from Crum to seal the game with just 12 seconds remaining solidified their unblemished record, lifting the Eagles to a 3-0 start to their season.
