Austin Hasting added a sixth touchdown for Creek.

The Dragons led 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. After falling behind 8-7, Haines ran for a 60-yard touchdown.

Springs Valley then took a 20-14 advantage, but a 15-yard TD pass from Brooks Howell to Hasting gave Silver Creek the lead for good.
