Salina Nick Bennett carried 19 times for 181 yards and four scores, and Veritas Christian cruised past St. John’s Military School on Friday night to remain undefeated at 5-0.
“It was high-scoring, but it was a very physical game,” Veritas coach Doug Bennett said. “We knew (Friday night) would be one of our toughest tests. I was pleased with the effort.”

Defensively, Veritas linebackers Harvey, Randall and Alex Lynch had eight tackles apiece.
