BHS rolls by South Granville

CREEDMOOR -- Bunn has produced some prolific offenses through the years, but the Wildcats' current group is making a case for being one of the school's all-time best.

The numbers tell the story of Bunn's offensive success on the gridiron as Coach David Howle's club has now scored 42 points or more in eight of its nine outings.

The latest dash of high-scoring heroics came when it mattered the most during a matchup with South Granville last Friday -- with first place at stake in the Northern Carolina Conference.

BHS became the lone undefeated team remaining in NCC action as the Wildcats scored the final 28 points to break open what had been a tight showdown.

By the time it was over, the visiting Wildcats had secured a 63-34 decision over the homestanding Vikings.

Bunn is now 7-2 overall to go with a 3-0 mark in the league. The Wildcats will be on the road this Friday to tangle with Franklinton.

South Granville dipped to 3-6 and 2-1.

"We've been able to score,'' Howle said. "The kids are playing really hard right now. Back in the early 1990s, we averaged about 45 points per game. But we will eventually see a game where we aren't going to be able to (dent the scoreboard) like that.''

The Vikings stayed close to the Wildcats before Bunn began to extend courtesy of Chris Bumpers' 2-yard touchdown run on the final play of the third quarter.

Bumpers' score would send the Wildcats to the closing 12 minutes with a 42-34 advantage.

The Wildcats weren't finished, though. Instead, Tevin Perry gave Bunn some more insurance with a 55-yard touchdown scamper at the 7:41 mark of the fourth stanza of action.

Three minutes later, Bunn was in the end zone again when Omar Rosa lumbered in from 9 yards out on a fourth-down situation.

Perry capped the scoring with a 40-yard interception return for a touchdown at the 2:22 mark.

The Wildcats finished with 418 total yards of offense, all of which came on the ground.

Bunn struck both with long drives and quick strikes. Four of the Wildcats' touchdowns came on 1-play marches -- and Perry also delivered with his victory-sealing interception return.

Perry had another huge outing for Bunn, delivering 284 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in addition to his pickoff for another score.

South Granville signal-caller Tucker Brown, a former Youngsville All-Star baseball standout, completed 11 of 19 passes for 244 yards.

Bunn will now get ready for a Franklinton club that needs a victory to improve its potential playoff standing. The Red Rams are 4-5 but have dropped three of their past four outings.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the FHS Football Field

"Franklinton is very athletic,'' Howle said. "I'm sure they will be ready for us -- it should be a good football game.''
