BETHANY, W.Va. -- A second half surge powered the Alderson-Broaddus football team to its seventh consecutive win, a 47-6 victory against Bethany College’s junior varsity team Monday evening.
The Battlers posted 29 points in the third quarter, totaling 47 unanswered before the Bison found the end zone in the final minutes of the contest.
“It was a tremendous effort from the team tonight,” said Assistant Head Coach Guido Falbo. “Both sides of the ball executed; offense, defense and special teams, and we still have room for improvement.”
Despite losing the time of possession battle against BC, the Bison controlled the ball for 42:02, the Battlers dominated every aspect of the ball game.
A-B’s offense tallied three passing touchdowns; the first came in the second quarter as quarterback Wilson Vaughn connected on the game’s longest scoring play from scrimmage, a 39-yard touchdown pass to Andre Garcia. Vaughn’s passing score gave the Battlers a 9-0 advantage before full back Caelon Ecos converted a two-point conversion to give A-B an 11-point lead with 13:29 remaining in the second quarter. The Battlers took an 11-0 lead into the locker room.
Quarterback Matt Hommell completed the games second passing touchdown to begin the Battler scoring effort in the second half. The Suffolk, Va., native tossed a 22-yard pass to tight end Cooper Schroeder to extend the lead to 17 following a missed extra point.
Following a Bethany three and out, Hommell again led the Battler offense into the end zone. He pitched the ball to receiver Isaac Silafau on an option play for a six-yard rushing touchdown. Phillip Warner connected with his second field goal of the day, a 42-yard attempt with 6:57 left in the third quarter to push the Battler lead to 27.
Defensive back Mamoud Kakay intercepted an errant pass from a Bison quarterback and Vaughn returned to the field to navigate A-B’s offense to its fourth consecutive scoring drive. Vaughn duplicated his previous success with Andre Garcia finding the Pacoima, Calif., native in the end zone to give the Battlers a 34-0 lead with 3:33 remaining.
The Battler defense recorded its second takeaway of the evening when defensive back Corey Hankerson pulled down an interception and raced 74 yards to pay dirt. Hankerson’s interception return put A-B on top by 40.
A wide snap by Bison center sent the football into the end zone on the next drive and Battler defensive lineman Daniel Fultz fell on it for another six points to start the game’s final quarter.
Trailing 47-0 the Bison cobbled together a late scoring drive capped by a passing touchdown from signal caller Shawn Ball. He finished the game with the Bison’s only touchdown, 90 yards passing and 56 yards on the ground.
Tailback Thomas Handy led the Battler rushing attack accumulating 92 yards on nine carries, including a 47-yard scamper. Douglas Wesson added 46 yards and Brehon Daniels ran for 30 yards against the Bison.
Vaughn led A-B passers with a pair of touchdown tosses and 100 yards through the air. Hommell followed with 76 yards passing and a touchdown.
Garcia caught two balls, both from Vaughn, for 72 yards and two touchdowns.
Warner connected on a 25 and 43 yard field goal and had three kick-offs result in touchbacks.
The Battlers travel to Annapolis, Md., Saturday to face Navy at 2 p.m. ET.
