Berean Christian Defeats Highlands Christian 57-7

The Berean Christian School Bulldogs football squad pushed their record to 3-0 last week. The team took an early lead and never looked back.

Quarterback Chris Mauck kept his aerial attack, going 12 for 17 on 165 yards and three touchdowns. Deryk Racine, who replaced the injured Nick Doucette, stepped in and caught two first-half touchdowns.

Joe Hendricks caught another touchdown pass, making his patented spin move for a great run after the catch. Sawyer Losey intercepted two passes and took the first one back for an early score. Kasey Montrois added a 44-yard touchdown run.

KeilonStube opened the second half with a 78-yard kickoff return, and with the Bulldogs up 42-0, Mauck stayed on the sidelines. With the offense turned over to the sophomore quarterback, Losey strategically guided them to two more scores with runs by Downey and Oakes. The Bulldogs allowed a late kickoff return by Highlands to end the game 57-7.

The Bulldogs return to conference play Sept. 19 against Zion Lutheran. Games are held at Wellington High School and admission is free.
