Including touchdown runs by Justin Fogleman and Jaize Norman, the Bulldogs accomplished everything they wanted during a 48-0 win over the Lewiston JV Thursday night, Sept. 28, despite a couple of scheduling oddities — one planned and one unplanned.
“This one answered some questions, because we had kind of a screwed up week with the short week and the bomb threat,” head coach Jeff Adams said. “We didn't have any excuses — everybody's got to play — and we saw two different scenarios play out tonight.”
Adams noted the Grangeville JV squad stumbled during an unusual 11-man/8-man match up against Prairie's JV before the varsity game, but Adams praised the GHS regulars for “competing real hard and staying focused on perfecting their craft.”
Adams noted it was the first time all season GHS played without committing a turnover. The Bulldogs led 6-0 on a run by Booker Bush, and 14-0 on a run by Tescher Harris followed by a Harris-to-Bush conversion; Grangeville's lead grew to 22 on a run by Fogleman and pass to Chase Adkison, and to 29 on a run by Braison Norman followed by Blake Darr's kick; GHS led 35-0 at halftime after Bush scored on a pass play; Bush returned the third-quarter kickoff for another touchdown, which made it 42, Darr's kick included; Jaize Norman made the final score 48-0 with a run late in the fourth quarter.
Coming — Grangeville (4-2) will play its first Central Idaho League game of the season this week, at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, at St. Maries.
