Blue Devil junior high trounces Southern Huntingdon Rockets

The undefeated Bellwood-Antis junior high football team continued to roll over all opposition at Southern Huntingdon on Thursday. The Little Blue Devils got a kick-start from three special teams scores on the way to a 56-6 thrashing of the winless Little Rockets.
Randy Pfahler opened the scoring for Bellwood-Antis returning a punt 55 yards for the first of three opening quarter scores. Before the first quarter was done, Drew Saylor galloped 46 yards from scrimmage for a touchdown and Levi Hollen plunged in for a one-yard score. Pfahler caught a two-point pass from Nate Gray after Saylor’s TD and Trey Mock was on the receiving end from Gray following the final TD of the quarter.
B-A added two more second-quarter scores to take a 36-0 advantage into the locker room at halftime. First Tyler Geis completed a 90-yard pass play from Gray for a score and Saylor rushed for the two-point conversion, then Hollen tallied from 35 yards for the TD.
Gray returned the second half kickoff for a 75-yard touchdown and Saylor capped a third-quarter drive with a 10-yard TD run and Pfahler added the two-point run.
Southern Huntingdon put their only score on the board in the fourth quarter on a short run with just 12 ticks left on the fourth-quarter clock, and Blue Devil eighth grader Zach McCaulley completed the scoring with no time on the clock returning the Southern Huntingdon kick for a 75-yard game-ending six-pointer.
“Our kids were very opportunistic tonight,” said Bellwood-Antis coach Charlie Burch. “We were able to score early and score often, headed up by our special teams play. When you can get that kind of game out of your special teams, you are usually on the positive side. Tonight, we were pretty much able to do whatever we wanted.
“We are hitting the toughest part of the schedule now in the next four weeks, and we got all the ninth graders in tonight and all the eighth graders. That experience will come in handy in the final part of our schedule. We need to continue to work hard and the coaches need to bring the kids back to reality for what we have coming up.”
Bellwood-Antis (5-0) will travel to Philipsburg-Osceola on Thursday to battle the Little Mounties at 6 p.m.
