The BCHS Wildcats recorded their first shut out of the season in a 40-0 road victory over Wolfson to improve their District 3-5A record to 2-1 and move to 4-2 overall.
For the second straight week, the Wildcats put the game away early with an explosive opening quarter. Defensive back Anthony James got the scoring underway by returning an interception for a touchdown. The team scored on each of its next two first-quarter possessions – a sneak from quarterback Jacob Carter and a 15-yard catch and run from wide receiver Michael Boone – to extend its lead to 21-0.
The offense was stagnant for most of the following three quarters, but the defense dominated the Wolfpack (0-5, 0-3). Baker County’s defense forced four turnovers and recorded three sacks.
The Wildcats’ offense found its spark late in the game and added 16 fourth-quarter points on scores by running back Dalton Dyal and Boone to extend the lead to 40-0.
Baker County will look to continue its winning streak in district play when the team hosts the Paxon Golden Eagles at Memorial Stadium October 11.
