Bruning-Davenport/Shickley remained undefeated on its 2015 campaign with a dominating 50-14 performance over Friend on Friday night in Shickley.
The 6-0 Eagles were ahead 44-0 midway through the game's second quarter and were able to empty its bench against the overmatched Bulldogs from there.  The victory also vaulted BDS to No. 1 in wildcard points in Class D-1.
"We felt like we dominated the line of scrimmage, which in our games with Friend in the past, we have not done," Eagle co-head coach Mark Rotter said.  "Our line guys—Stuart Rohr, Noel Gines, Holden Stengel, Kendall Dickson and John Christensen did a great job."
The BDS offense also showed brightly on October 9.  Eagle quarterback Riley Tegtmeier dazzled in several open-field runs en route to three touchdowns and 106 yards rushing.  Kale Kleinschmidt rushed for 83 and a score in the lopsided win.  Jacob Swartzendruber also scored a touchdown and ran for 57 yards.  Thomas Mick rushed for 46 yards and a TD.  John Christensen also hit pay dirt for the Eagles.
"Jacob Swartzendruber showed no fear carrying the ball 15 times for 57 yards and a touchdown," BDS co-head coach Chris Ardissono said.
Tegtmeier also passed for 34 yards with a pair of 17-yard connections with Sam Christensen and Ben Elznic.  The Eagles led in total-yard stats 347-181.
On defense, Elznic picked off a Bulldog pass and raced to the east end zone for a score.
Stengel and Rohr combined for team-high tackles at eight.  Brett Holtzen had six stops.
BDS hosts winless McCool Junction this Friday night in Bruning for the Bruning-Davenport Homecoming contest.  Next up, is a game at Pawnee City before the D-1 State Football Play-offs begin Thursday, October 29.
