BDS Wins No. 1-2 Showdown

Bruning-Davenport/Shickley won Round One against Falls City Sacred Heart, 23-14, Friday afternoon at Jug Brown Stadium in Falls City.  After sparring during the first half on October 6, the Eagles landed a pair of haymakers in the third and fourth periods that left the defending State Champions on the canvass.
BDS drove deep into Irish territory on its first possession only to turn the ball over  on downs.  FCSH would drive the length of the field on its first possession to score the only points of the first half.
The 6-0 Eagles scored for the first time in the third period when John Christensen hooked up with Grant Norder for a 62-yard pitch-and-catch.  The Thomas Mick PAT run was good.  
BDS would score twice in the final period to go up 23-6.  Garrett Schardt bobbled the ball a bit before racing to the endzone.  Holden Stengel kicked the PAT.  Next, Christensen hooked up with a long TD pass and Mick converted the PAT.
FCSH would drive late and score a desperation ID with just over two minutes left to cap the score at 23-14.  The Irish did corral an onside kick to make things more interesting at the end.
"Anyone that knows us, knows that we will always spend more time on defense than offense," Eagle co-head coach Mark Rotter said.  "Our courage was awesome...their great QB had no one to throw too."
Christensen rushed for 68 yards and Mick had 60 yards.  Schardt darted for 42 yards and Norder had 11.  Christensen threw for 135 yards.  Norder snagged 69 yards of passes and Schardt hauled in 30 yards.  Stengel had 25 yards receiving.
BDS had 316 total yards compared to 215 for FCSH, which fell to 5-1.
Mick and Karson Dickson both logged a dozen tackles.  Stengel was in one eight stops.
"The game was a total team effort," Eagle co-head coach Chris Ardissono said.  "The starters played a full game making some big plays in the second half."
BDS's last trip to Jug Brown Stadium was a disappointing semi-final loss.
