The Berean Christian football team (8-0) finished its regular season last week undefeated with a victory over the International School Comets from Maitland, 40-21.
Quarterback Chris Mauck went 15 for 20, throwing 203 yards and three touchdowns. All three touchdowns were caught by junior receiver Keilon Stube.
Free safety Joe Hendricks added to his interception count and took one all the way to pay dirt. Luke Langsam added a rushing score, and the Bulldogs took an early 33-7 lead at the half.
With a significant lead, Mauck took a seat for the second half and turned the reins over to sophomore Brendon Oakes. Oakes guided the Bulldogs to a quick third quarter score with Hendricks taking it in from the 15, to make it 40-7.
The defenses traded three and outs, and the third quarter ended with Berean up by 33. Now in complete control, the Bulldogs sent the first defense to the pine and gave younger players a chance to shine. They showed great effort early in the fourth quarter, but did give up two late scores to make the final score 40-21.
Berean has home field advantage for the first round of the SSAC playoffs this week. The Bulldogs were set to face Seffner Christian School on Thursday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. on the Wellington High School field.
