East Central jumped to a quick 12-0 lead on touchdown passes to Deontre Youngblood and Taylor on its first two drives before Del City answered with Lawrence's 77-yard score.
But the Cardinals came right back with a seven-play, 74-yard drive that ended in Taylor's 18-yard touchdown pass to Youngblood.
“I'm the backup quarterback, so that's something we've been working on,” Taylor said. “They'll bite on the jet play, and that leaves him open in the end zone.”
East Central led 34-6 at halftime.
“The first half went as well as it could've gone,” Klinck said.
For Del City, the road doesn't get any easier as the Eagles play a pair of tough Class 6A opponents to close non-district play, at Norman North next Friday and at Midwest City on Sept. 14.
