Kearns' three first quarter touchdown receptions – 45 yards, 79 yards and 42 yards – gave the Lions a 28-0 lead they never relinquished.
"If [Kody] is open, that's who we are going to him," Clear Lake Jared DeVries.
"We were one fire," Kearns said of the first quarter. "We have a great quarterback. Jaylen (DeVries), he's amazing. We've just been all working together."
