BRUNING – Bruning-Davenport/Shickley was dominant again on Wednesday as they dispatched Fullerton 50-16 to move into the quarterfinals of the Class D2 football playoffs.
The BDS starters played suffocating defense, not allowing a single first down before coming out of the game. They also forced two turnovers on interceptions by Jacob Schoenholz and Caden Norder.
Meanwhile the Eagle offense scored early and often. Quarterback John Christensen led the way, passing for 95 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 72 yards and two more scores. Thomas Mick added 90 rush yards and two touchdowns along with 58 receiving yards and two scores. Holden Stengel also had a receiving touchdown.
Fullerton was finally able to move the ball after BDS put in the backups, scoring a third quarter touchdown on a one yard run by Hunter Friend and one in the fourth quarter on a 25 yard pass from Brandon Rasmussen to Brent Wetovick.
BDS remains unbeaten and advances to the quarterfinals where they will face Wynot, who beat Friend earlier in the evening 34-10. That game will kickoff at 5 p.m. Tuesday in Wynot and will be broadcast on Ol’ Red 99.5.
