Lincoln East jumped to a big lead against Papillion-La Vista South before the Titans rallied for a stunning win last week.
The Spartans made sure there was no comeback Friday.
The Class A No. 10 Spartans (2-1) posted 42 points in the game's first 16 minutes en route to a 56-7 victory at Norfolk.
After forcing a punt to open the game, East scored in three plays, and took a 14-0 lead on Noah Walters' strike to Billie Stephenson.
Walters connected with Malachi Coleman for a 65-yard touchdown less than 2 minutes later.
When Norfolk (1-2) did respond, the Spartans had a quick answer. Jalen Welch returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown to give East a 35-7 lead.
Then Stephenson intercepted a Norfolk pass in Panther territory, which set up Walters' 35-yard touchdown to Cooper Erikson with 9:37 remaining in the first half.
The Spartans kept their foot on the gas.
Welch broke through the middle for a 16-yard touchdown to extend the lead to 49-7 with 6:26 remaining in the first half.
Another Spartan interception set up East's eighth touchdown of the first half — a 10-yard touchdown catch by Luke Greisen.
East will host Millard North next week.
