Bulloch brings it on road at DEA

    STILLMORE — Bulloch Academy raced out to a 26-0 first-quarter lead and never looked back as the Gators trounced David Emanuel Academy 58-18 here Thursday night.
    Junior Andrew Howell rushed for 97 yards and three touchdowns while senior Dylan Stuckey had 88 yards and two scores. Howell had runs of seven, 10 and 36 yards while Stuckey added blasts of 15 and one yard. Both sat out the majority of the second half.
    Bulloch (2-0) amassed 442 yards rushing with over 300 of that coming in the first half as BA built a 39-0 halftime lead. The Gators scored on all six first-half possessions and two more in the second half as well as a special teams score. BA used just seven offensive plays in the first quarter to take a 20-0 lead by the 7:50 mark.
    Junior Joshua Bohannon added a 25-yard jaunt for six points in the first quarter while senior Henry Blitch had a one-yard plunge in the fourth quarter and senior Will Rushing popped a 78-yard kickoff return in the third.
    The Gator offensive line did its job well, efficiently opened holes and giving the BA backs running room to break through into the DEA defensive backfield.
    The no-huddle offense kept the Eagles off balance as well. 
    As dominant as the BA offense was in the first half, the Gator defense was as good or better.
    Senior Jake Hagan had three first-quarter quarterback sacks, Howell recovered an onside kick and classmate Joshua Bishop blocked a punt.
    The Wing-T offense that BA head coach Terence Hennessy had feared never materialized.
    David Emanuel (0-2) had only 57 total yards at intermission.
    In the third, Howell’s third touchdown of the night was a powerful display of force as he ran over opponents and shook loose from would-be tacklers during his 36-yard romp.
    With a 45-0 lead, Hennessy’s biggest decision was who to try at what position. He gave ample playing time to his bench personnel on both sides of the ball.
Bulloch Academy hits the road again next week, traveling to Lyons to face defending GISA Class A state champion Robert Toombs Christian Academy.
