 The varsity football team entered the game against Langham Creek on Saturday with high hopes of staying undefeated as they came off a 27-21 win against Shadow Creek, and stayed that way with a 42-8 victory over the Lobos. 

The game got off to a rocky start with two intercepted passes at the beginning of the first quarter, but the game’s momentum took to the Bears’ side as Conner Weigman scored their first touchdown. However, the Lobos continued to fight back by tightening up their defense against the Bear’s offense.

Heading into the second half, Bridgeland led 21-0 with Conner Weigman throwing the second touchdown to Hunter Wallis and the third to Andrew Maleski. Langham Creek linebacker Jayhvion Gipson made two great tackles at the beginning of the third quarter preventing Bridgeland from scoring again, however, a fumble by Alejandro Vasquez for the Lobos stopped them from reaching the end zone. Bridgeland ended the third quarter on a high note when Gavan Kaspar intercepted the ball and ran it in for a touchdown leaving the score at 35-0. 

To start off the fourth quarter, Langham Creek quarterback Tanner Murray found Jaquaize Pettaway for their first touchdown along with a two-point conversion finally getting them on the board with a score of 35-8. The Bears were able to end the game with one final touchdown by Josh Stephens making a 42-8. When the Lobos tried to make it down to the end zone for another touchdown, Jaryn Sims intercepted the ball for the Bears to seal the deal.

With the first district win under their belts, the Bears start to prepare for their upcoming game on Friday at 7:00 against Cy-Woods.
