WARRENTON -- Bunn stopped Warren County for an 11-yard loss on the opening play of the game -- and that was just a sign of things to come for the Wildcats.
BHS dominated last Friday's Northern Carolina Conference football event at Warren County from the get-go, surging to a 53-24 triumph over the homestanding Eagles.
Bunn is now 3-4 overall and 2-0 in the NCC, while Warren County remained winless overall.
The Wildcats have been keeping the scoreboard moving recently, tallying a whopping 190 combined points over the past four games.
And it didn't take long for Bunn to get started Friday.
After the opening-play loss, the Eagles faced a must-pass situation on third down, and Bunn's Jacob Terlizzi was there for a clutch interception that gave the Wildcats a possession at the Warren County 31-yard line.
BHS quarterback Cody Collier kept the ball for 17 yards on the first play, but suffered a leg injury and did not return to the contest.
With freshman Damarion Watkins serving as the signal-caller, Bunn turned to the ground, and Jaylen Perry finished the drive from 4 yards out with a touchdown plunge up the middle.
The PAT failed, but the Wildcats were ahead to stay at 6-0 at the 9:45 mark of the opening stanza of action.
Two series later, Bunn was on the board again as Perry raced 42 yards to the Warren County 25.
On the next snap, BHS fullback Juvenal Angulo rumbled untouched up the middle for a touchdown.
Angulo also handled the responsibilities on the 2-point run to send the Wildcats ahead 14-0.
Angulo's 5-yard TD run midway through the second period put Bunn into what seemed to be complete control at 20-0, but Warren County responded with a pair of touchdown passes to claw back to within 20-16.
But on the kickoff after the second score, BHS' Lavadous Bolden returned the ball 79 yards for a clutch score at the 15-second mark before halftime.
BHS then opened the second half with a trio of unanswered touchdowns. Perry scored on bursts of 56 and 39 yards, while Angulo found the end zone again from 7 yards out.
Jordan Perry capped the scoring for the Wildcats with a 62-yard touchdown bolt in the final minute of the game.
Jaylen Perry had a huge night with 222 rushing yards to go with three touchdowns on just 12 attempts.
The Wildcats closed with a whopping 419 rushing yards.
Bunn will resume its NCC slate this Friday with a road matchup at much-improved Oxford Webb, which is coming off a convincing win over league opponent Louisburg.
