Veritas Christian romps past Steelville, 58-34

September 3, 2011


— Nick Bennett had 17 carries for 201 yards and four touchdowns and threw for three more as Veritas Christian School opened its football season with a 58-34 victory over Steelville (Mo.) on Friday.

“It was a good win for us,” Veritas coach Doug Bennett said. “After coming off last year, when we had a great season, we have a lot of guys in new positions, and we were looking for some new guys to step up. We beat a good team. We had to earn every yard we got tonight.”

Preston Randall had 21 carries for 144 yards for another score.

Veritas (1-0) will play host to Canton-Galva on Friday.
