Walton rolls past Bobcats

WALTON _ Undefeated Walton turned a little breathing room into a big blowout Saturday.

The Warriors scored on three of its first six offensive plays in the second half en route to a 66-0 Section Four Football Conference Division VI rout of Bainbridge-Guilford.

Casey Killian, Dustin Bowker and Logan Wood each scored inside the first five minutes of the second half, and the Warriors (4-0, 3-0) made good on all three two-point conversions to quickly turn a 14-0 halftime lead into a 38-0 advantage on a hot and sunny homecoming afternoon.

"In the second half, it was like an avalanche," said B-G coach Tim Mattingly, whose team gave up a 1-yard touchdown run to Killian, a 59-yard TD pass from Pat O'Brien to Bowker and a 65-yard TD run by Wood during the Warriors' 30-point third quarter. "It got bigger and bigger and bigger and we just couldn't stop them,"

Killian, who gave Walton a 6-0 lead with a 6-yard TD catch in the opening quarter, capped Walton's three-play drive to start the second half with a 1-yard scoring run. Anthony Mead set up Killian's plunge with a 64-yard run from the Warriors' 34. Wood and Killian followed with back-to-back 1-yard gains, the latter giving Walton a 20-0 lead 1:25 into the third period. Killian's conversion run put Walton ahead, 22-0.

B-G quarterback Chris McGinnis ran for 27 yards on the first play of the ensuing drive, but he was stripped and Walton recovered at its 41. O'Brien rolled right on first down and hit Bowker in stride down the right side for a 59-yard TD.

"Bowker said, Coach, they are completely forgetting about me. I go down the field and no one is there,'" said Walton coach Jim Hoover, whose team is the state's third-ranked program in Class D and visits rival Delhi at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday in a key Division VI matchup.
