Bowdon led 14-10 after one quarter of play.
The Red Devils, however, would firmly take control of the contest in the second quarter, scoring 28 points to maintain a 42-10 lead as the teams headed for the locker room at halftime.
Cade Cordle would score the lone Indians touchdown in the second half, streaking across the goal line from 2 yards outside the goal line.
