BV students blew up Twitter with tweets about the Tigers’ 77-6 win over BV North.
The Tiger defense started off strong, denying the Mustangs any chance at moving downfield, forcing them to punt. The short 15-yard punt by the Mustangs led to Kyle Zimmerman’s 50-yard pass to wide receiver Sean Skaggs, for a Tiger touchdown with 6:15 left in the first quarter.
With 2:08 left in the first quarter, Zimmerman faked a throw over the top and ran the ball in for a touchdown, making the score 14-0.
Only seconds after the start of the second quarter, Justin Fulks ran in a 5-yard touchdown for BV. The scoreboard read 21-0.
Less than a minute later, with 10:16 left in the first half, Cole Combs picked off a pass by the Mustang quarterback. This resulted in a 42-yard touchdown pass to Ryan McNerlin, who juked the defender and ran the ball in for a touchdown.
Minutes later, Fulks made a quick 35-yard run down field, leading to a 5-yard touchdown run by Zimmerman. This touchdown extended the Tigers’ lead to 35-0.
On the Mustangs next drive, senior Cole Foster intercepted the pass from the BVN quarterback.
With 4:08 left in the first half, Zimmerman handed the ball off to senior Matt Floyd, who ran it 15 yards for another touchdown.
The strong Tiger defense forced the Mustangs to punt on their next possession. The hike was a little too high for the kicker, who bobbled the ball. BV gained possession at the 8 yard line.
Fulks ran it in for a touchdown with 2:32 left in the half, putting the Tigers ahead 49-0.
The Mustang kick returner bobbled the ball on his chest, fumbling it for the Tigers to pick up at the 13 yard line. Ryan McNerlin ran the ball in on the next play for another BV touchdown.
Again with 1:15 left in the half, BVN fumbled the ball, which was picked up by BV, and run in for yet another Tiger touchdown by Fulks.
The scoreboard displayed a score of 63-0 going into halftime.
The second half started off slow, without much action until the Mustangs scored a touchdown with 3:10 left in the third quarter. However, those six points couldn’t really make a dent in the Tigers’ strong lead.
In the second half, BV played many of the teams’ non-starters. With 11:53 left in the game, junior Brian Nyugen ran the ball in for a touchdown, putting BV up 70-6.
With 8:11 left, junior Dakota Jacobson scored the Tigers’ last touchdown of the night.
The final score was BV 77 – BVN 6.
