BLUEFIELD, Va. -- Alderson-Broaddus football dominated both sides of the ball Sunday, despite a sluggish first half, as they defeated Bluefield College's junior varsity team 57-6. With the win, Battler football extended its winning streak to six games.
“It was good to see a total team effort with the defense, offense and special teams in the second half after a slow start,” said Assistant Coach and Offensive Coordinator Kirk Campbell. “We were able to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.”
The Battlers (6-0) took an early lead posting 22 points in the first quarter. Freshman kicker Phillip Warner split the up rights twice and A-B added a pair of touchdowns, one on the ground and another by air. The navy and gold also converted a pair of two-point conversions.
Leading 22-0, the Rams attempted to answer to the Battler scoring barrage with a field goal to begin the second quarter. BC’s field goal attempt failed and A-B’s offense responded with a scoring drive. Quarterback Wilson Vaughn connected with wide receiver Guy Morris on a long touchdown pass to extend the Battlers lead to 29-0 after the extra point.
The Rams kicked field goals to end the first and begin the second half of Sunday’s contest. But A-B’s special teams, led by dynamic kick returner Deanerius Wilson, sparked the offense. Wilson raced a kick into the end zone and gave the Battlers a 36-6 advantage.
A-B added a pair of passing touchdowns and a rushing score from tailback Brandon Jones capped the afternoon’s scoring effort. Three Battler passers collected touchdowns. Vaughn and Wesley Nesmith notched one and Matt Hommell tallied two scores.
The Battlers return to action versus Bethany College Monday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. ET.
