Extra yards

East Bernard senior running back Devin Chapman attempts to stiff-arm a Boling defender Friday at Bulldog stadium. 

BOLING – The East Bernard Brahmas’ road game against the Boling Bulldogs is no longer a district game for the next two years. But, coach Wade Bosse’s bunch sure played like it their game Friday as they rolled to a 42-9 victory at Bulldog Stadium.

“We’re neighbors, and when you’re neighbors, you’re going to play a hard game like this,” Bosse said. “I take my hat off to Boling; they played extremely hard. It went well for us.”

East Bernard improved their season record to 3-0; Boling falls to 1-1.

The Brahmas had more than 500 yards of total offense; part of the reason was their third-down efficiency. The Brahmas went 8 of 12 on the key down to keep drives alive. It resulted in four first-half touchdowns that ate up a lot of game clock. The first two scoring drives went 11 plays each. The Brahmas’ third scoring drive nine plays.

The third quarter is the reason Bosse will humble his Brahmas next week. He said his team still has a lot of work to do to get better.

“We need to continue to work. That’s what we learned from this game because we’re still playing sloppy ball,” Bosse said. “I think you’re seeing it all over right now with the way (the season started). It’s taken a while to fix, and we’re going to work hard to fix the things we need to do to get better.”

East Bernard had two turnovers and didn’t score any points in the third quarter. But, on the flip side, neither did Boling. The Bulldogs only had three first downs, rushed for 25 total yards, but made up for it through the air. East Bernard allowed Boling quarterback Jaxson Urbanek to pass for 110 yards on 7-of-18 completions.

East Bernard’s second-year quarterback Dallas Novicke passed for 132 yards, completing six passes on eight attempts and one touchdown throw. The Brahmas’ ground game was what did the Bulldogs in. Devin Chapman rushed for 130 yards on 15 attempts. Andrew Dirba had 110 yards, also on 15 carries.

Chapman scored on a 20- and 12-yard runs and a 39-yard pass completion. Dirba scored on an 11-yard run. Three other players rushed for at least 40 yards each. The Brahmas had scores from Nicklas Schatz (TD run), Kaleb Marek (TD run), and Novicke.

Kicker Grant Prazak nailed a 38-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.BOLING – The East Bernard Brahmas’ road game against the Boling Bulldogs is no longer a district game for the next two years.
