CD East had just six wins in their last three seasons combined. This year, they were looking to shatter that record in Week 8. In the third quarter, things seemed certain for CD East already up 26-0. The Panthers would add to the lead with Jackson Copney throwing it up and Tymere Thornton bringing it down over two defenders to make it 33-0. Marcel McDaniels Jr. would come up with a rushing TD of his own as CD East cruises to a 40-7 win.
