Bunn Rallies Past Webb
OXFORD -- The final 15 minutes of Bunn's key Northern Carolina Conference football game at Webb on Friday were certainly memorable for the visiting Wildcats.
Trailing by 14 points, Bunn rallied for 22 unanswered tallies as part of an amazing comeback that sent the Wildcats past Webb by a stunning 36-20 margin -- and put BHS into a first-place tie with South Granville in the NCC.
That fate did not seem attainable for the Wildcats (now 3-0 in the league) as they were behind 20-6 in the third frame before embarking on a drive that was capped by a 3-yard touchdown plunge from Juvenal Angulo, who would play a huge role in the rally.
Still, Bunn was behind 20-14 with 2:45 remaining in the third quarter, but the Wildcats would piece together another march and would move ahead for good on a 14-yard TD run from Angulo, which was followed by a successful 2-point burst from Jaylen Perry.
Less than one minute later, Bunn came up with one of the biggest defensive plays of the season as Lavadous Bolden returned to fumble 30 yards for another touchdown, and the Wildcats, in stunning fashion, had moved ahead 30-20.
Angulo capped off the unbelievable stretch with a 22-yard touchdown gallop for the clincher with just 1:01 remaining in the fourth period.
Angulo was sharp for the Wildcats with 117 rushing yards to go with three scores, while Bolden and Perry chipped in with 50 rushing yards apiece. Bolden also caught three passes for 26 yards in addition to his defensive heroics.
Bunn finished with 282 total yards, compared to 254 for the homestanding Warriors, who fell to 2-1 in the conference.
The Wildcats also took advantage of four turnovers -- two fumble recoveries along with a pair of important pickoffs from Perry.
First place outright in the NCC will be at stake next Friday when the Wildcats entertain South Granville for the 'Game of the Year' to date in the conference.
Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at the BHS Football Field, and tickets will be available at the gate.
