Baldwin, Eudora roll in districts

BHS routs SF Trail, EHS blanks Ottawa to set up Thursday showdown

October 23, 2010


— Baldwin High wasted no time in hammering Santa Fe Trail in a Class 4A district football game Friday night.

The Bulldogs rolled to a 53-14 victory to improve to 7-1 overall and 2-0 in districts to set up a showdown with rival Eudora on Thursday at EHS.

The Cards also improved to 2-0 in district play Friday.

“Our kids came out and they were focused, just like we knew they would be tonight,” Baldwin coach Mike Berg said. “We didn’t want to turn the ball over, which we didn't. We wanted to execute.”

“It feels good right to be 2-0 in districts,” BHS senior Josh Hoffman said. “These last games mean a lot to us. Being 2-0 is great, but we've only got one game that matters right now, and that is Eudora next week.”

Hoffman broke the second play of the game for 60 yards to give Baldwin a 7-0 lead. After the Bulldogs' Braden Souders intercepted a Chargers pass, Ryan Rogers ran 59 yards three plays later for Baldwin's second score of the contest. Baldwin needed only five offensive plays to lead 13-0.

“Our backs are running hard,” Berg said. “Our linemen really made some huge holes tonight. I thought they played really well.”

Hoffman scored three more touchdowns on the ground Friday. He also scored on runs of 20 yards and a pair of two-yard touchdowns.

Baldwin will play at 7 p.m. Thursday at Eudora to decide the Class 4A district title. Eudora has won the last two contests against the Bulldogs.
