Bad second quarter sinks BCHS versus West Laurens.

Bad second quarter sinks BCHS versus West Laurens.

The Royals welcomed West Laurens to Cochran Friday night.  Last year's 33-0 loss was the largest margin of victory for the Raiders since a 34-15 BC loss in 2005.  It was scoreless after one quarter.  But in the second, the Raiders scored five teams.

Three were the result of fumbles.  Two of those fumbles came after fumbled punts, the seventh and eighth special teams mistakes this season for Bleckley.  West Laurens would go on to win 42-7.  They amassed 218 yards, most of which came in the first half.

Nykeem Farrow had Bleckley's only touchdown, a 16-yard run in the fourth.  LaDarrick Vickers had 52 yards on ten carries.  BCHS will be off until September 18 when they host Dublin at 7:30 pm.
