Brent Taylor passed, ran and returned an interception for touchdowns.
Valentina Foba carried 13 times for 87 yards. Hunter Hampton had nine rushes for 63 yards and Cameron Lifsey ran eight times for 22 yards.
Cameron Fryer caught two passes for 60 yards, including a touchdown.
LCA led 14-0 at halftime and Taylor ran back an interception 25 yards for a touchdown just a minute into the second half.
The Lions travel to Strong Rock Christian next week.
