The Mayer Wildcats had nothing to play for from a playoff standpoint in their regular-season finale, but brought their game nonetheless against their crosstown rivals in Mayer Friday night.
The Wildcats overcame a home loss at the hands of Bagdad last week by topping 50 points for the third time this season, and won for the sixth time in seven weeks.
Ian Mills scored four touchdowns and threw for another while carrying the ball 10 times for 115 yards in the winning effort.
QB Aaron Sullivan finished 13-of-18 for 232 yards, and rushed for 115 more. He also recorded 23 tackles and recovered a fumble on defense.
Mayer had already sewn up the No. 2 seed in the 1A West Region and will face either Veritas Prep or Duncan in next week's first round of state.
