But West continued to put pressure on the Jaguar defense, getting four more goals without facing any real threats from East.
"I really thought at the end of the first half, we would come out and play a little bit better in the second half and make a ball game out of it," East Coach Eric Lichaa.
He attributed the difference in the game to the amount of focus on both sides.
"I've got to give West a lot of credit," he said. "That's a team that was very focused and had a lot of energy tonight. It's the difference between a team starting 10 seniors and a team with two. We are a young team. That's still no excuse for the way we played. We beat this team 3-1 (in the regular season) and come out tonight and got shelled. There's no excuse for that."
The early pressure from West was the strategy, West Coach Nate Andrews said.
"We got our goals early which was part of our game plan," he said. "From there, things kinda opened up for us and we were able to get a few more. I'm proud of the way the guys fought, proud of the way the guys worked, and it's about time they got a nice victory like that. They've deserved that for a while."
Ryan Robinson paced the Colts with a hat trick. Adam Howard, Cliff Evans and Billy Congleton added goals, as well. Howard also had three assists. Ryan Moberly and Robinson also had assists. Crist allowed just the one goal in the first half.
The Jaguars finish the year 8-10-1. The Colts improved to 11-6-2 on the year and moved on to face Dunbar in the second round Wednesday night but the results were not available by press time.
West and Dunbar tied during the regular season at Dunbar, in an emotion-fueled game. The Colts have a unique opportunity in the postseason.
The Colts, despite high expectations coming into the season, hit a tough stretch throughout their district schedule and were just 0-3-2.
"The nice thing is we get to face all the teams we lost to and we get to be that team who sends them home," Andrews said. "There's a little extra bit of motivation that comes with that for the guys."
