BCHS got off to a good defensive start Friday at West Laurens, picking off passes on the Raiders first two possessions. But they could not capitalize on either. WLHS got 14 points off turnovers, converting a fumble into a touchdown run and returning a first half fumble for six.
Bleckley lost 33-0. The rushing game continued to struggle producing 52 yards. Austin Simmons caught six passes for 88 yards, accounting for most of the 97 yards passing. The Raiders did most of their damage through the air with 204 yards passing. After giving up 90 yards rushing in the first half, Bleckley's defense held WL to 31 in the second half.
BC returns to action September 19 at Dublin High School. Kickoff is 7:30 pm.
