By the time the Berne Union Rockets fastened their chinstraps, they were already behind the Nelsonville-York Buckeyes. The Bucks flexed their muscles and soundly beat the Rockets 57-0 at Boston Field Friday night.
The Bucks began the game imposing their will running the ball all nine plays of their first drive, which was capped with a two yard TD run by Dustin Young. From there, the Buckeyes put the pedal down and never looked back. They were able to score two touchdowns in less than a minute when quarterback Nathan Dean found Kyle Freer for a 32 pass. The defense came up big when they recovered a fumble on the Berne Union 19 yard line. The very next play, Dean found Marc Carter in the back of the end zone to make it 19-0.
After Berne Union’s only threat stalled on the Nelsonville 30 yard line, Young was able to scamper 70 yards for another Buckeyes touchdown as time expired in the first quarter, making it 26-0 and putting the game out of reach. Dean had a solid night under center completing 10 of 11 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns.Young had an incredible day at running back, rushing for 202 yards on just ten carries. He scored four touchdowns bringing his total to 11 on the season.
It was a very forgettable night for the Berne Union offense, as they were only able to gain 102 total yards and turned the ball over three times. Nelsonville-York will look to continue their undefeated season when they travel to Columbus to face Bishop Ready. Berne Union will be traveling to Landcaster to play Fisher Catholic still looking for their first win of the season.
