On Friday, Aug. 23, Berean Christian School’s football team faced Merritt Island Christian School at Wellington High School.
There were a lot of firsts that happened at the opening game of the 2013 season. It was the first time the team wore its new uniforms, it was the first win of the season and it was the first time playing on the field that is now known to Berean as Adcahb Field.
A record crowd came out to cheer on the Bulldogs to victory thanks to support from Adcahb Medical Coverages, which is underwriting the cost of the entire home schedule.
The Bulldogs opened a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. While the Cougars put 6 points on the board, the Bulldogs were able to find the end zone twice in the fourth quarter, making the final score 35-6 to end the game with a Bulldog victory.
Highlights from the game included 323 yards of total offense with Chris Mauck passing for 283 of those yards. Austin Skelton registered 168 receiving yards. Touchdowns were executed by Gio Nazario, Jeremiah Bridgewater, Joseph Hendricks and Austin Skelton.
