Bulldogs Devour Aces, Put An End To Amanda-Clearcreek’s Hot Streak< < Back to
AMANDA, Ohio (WOUB) — Coming in hot for week six of the Mid-State League, a showdown of the season: Bloom-Carroll versus Amanda-Clearcreek. Coming into the game, the Aces (3-1) were looking to hand the Bulldogs (4-0) the first loss of their season but ended up taking it themselves.
The Bulldogs gave the Aces a run for their money in terms of defense after Amanda-Clearcreek came off their 20-10 victory over Liberty Union last week. With A-C’s star quarterback, Nate Hunter, being shut down the entirety of the game, the Aces could not gain any leverage for yards.
Hunter only threw for 67 yards. The Aces as a whole were held to only 117 yards of total offense.
Where the Aces lacked, the Bulldogs gained as their offense stepped up at the end of the second quarter and finished the game with a 34-7 victory. K.J. Benedict completed 15 of his 19 passes for 158 yards with three touchdowns.
Chase Plantz led the attack on the ground with 98 yards, including a 40-yard score in the second quarter.
This contest between Amanda-Clearcreek (3-2, 1,1) and Bloom-Carroll (5-0, 2-0) brought the finest together, but the Bulldogs took the final finish. As week six approaches, the offensive drive of Bloom-Carroll heightens, as they now prepare to take on Liberty Union. Meanwhile, Amanda-Clearcreek will travel to take on Circleville in a Tiger showdown.
