On a night when a Bunker Hill offensive weapon reached a milestone mark, the Bears defense mauled their opponents in the gameâ€™s waning moments to preserve a 34-26 victory over Fred T. Foard.
â€śI am real proud of the way the defense stepped up there in the fourth quarter,â€ť said Bunker Hill coach Travis Conner. â€śWe got some big stops.â€ť
Searching for a boost against St. Stephens, Maiden turned to Will power.
Senior Will Jenkins, who had 243 yards on the ground coming into Fridayâ€™s game, rushed for 157 yards on eight carries and returned a kickoff 94 yards for a score. That performance helped surge the Blue Devils (2-2) to their first home win of the season, 36-10, against the Indians (0-4).
The Bandys Trojans got off to somewhat of a slow start early. When the offense got going behind the running of Devan Davis, Jackson Gilliam, and Dominique Young, however, Bandys ran for 131 first-half yards, scored 33 points and routed the North Lincoln Knights 54-7 at Gary Butler Memorial Stadium on Friday night.
Bandys (4-0) racked up 287 total yards with 156 of those coming in the second half.
