The first round of the state 2-AA West playoffs did not go as planned for Bunker Hill. The Bears rolled into Shelby on Friday night a lot of momentum, but they sputtered offensively losing 38-6.
Bunker Hill was limited to 200 yards of total offense and was pinned on its half of field most of the night.
â€śThey came in and played very hard,Â very physical,â€ť said Shelby head coach Chris Norman. â€śThey gave us a challenge. That three-headed monster gave us a scare all week, but our defensive unit played well, and we won the line-of-scrimmage battle against them.â€ť
The Owen Warhorses rode their workhorse to a first-round win over the Newton-Conover Red Devils, and he is a big one.
Running back Austin Davis, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior, had a game-high 197 yards rushing and three offensive touchdowns for Owen in a 28-25 win at Gurley Stadium.
Davis scored 26 points Friday â€”Â four touchdowns and a 2-point conversion â€” and called his performance a â€ścareer night.â€ť Owen coach Ken Ford said Davis has made â€śbig playsâ€ť the entire season.
