On a night when a Bunker Hill offensive weapon reached a milestone mark, the Bears defense mauled their opponents in the gameâs waning moments to preserve a 34-26 victory over Fred T. Foard.
âI am real proud of the way the defense stepped up there in the fourth quarter,â said Bunker Hill coach Travis Conner. âWe got some big stops.â
Searching for a boost against St. Stephens, Maiden turned to Will power.
Senior Will Jenkins, who had 243 yards on the ground coming into Fridayâs 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.
