BMS finds best offense is good defense
As it turned out, the best offensive weapon of the Bandera Middle School eighth grade gridironers was to turn the ball over and let the Dog defense play.
Blake Reed had two interceptions, one of which was returned 40 yards, for a Bandera touchdown. A second interception by Jonathan Stoufflet set up another scoring opportunity. In the first half, Ethan Grevan stripped the ball from a rival quarterback and ran for 6o yards crossing the goal. The final score was 22-6.
Caleb Beauchamp played a great game at linebacker and Bryce Dowda, Brent Ahrens and Chris Toenes continued to contain the Comfort offense. Beachamp scored in the first quarter with a 50-yard run in the first and Jonathan Raitz attempted the conversion but failed. Beauchamp immediately broke loose for another 60-yard touchdown run and Joe Reeves ran the ball for the two-point conversion. When congratulating Beauchamp for a great game, Beauchamp noted that praise should be given to the offensive line including Ruben Guel, Toenes, Jake Tarr, Brett Dusek, Izzy Olivares, Lucas Taulli, Ahrens, Austin Hornung, Logan Breen, Hunter Copeland and Julian Valdovinaos.
The blocking of Dowda and Greg Macias took Comfort linebackers out of the equation.
