Bulldogs blast into Wayne with 40-6 win last Friday
GUNNISON—Gunnison Valley High’s varsity football team had a killer season opener, blasting the Wayne Badgers, 40-6, on Friday, Aug. 19.
The game started out rough for Wayne. The first quarter was a total shutout, with Gunnison’s returning running back Kyler White making a 90-yard kick return and teammate Mike Hansen catching a 10-yard touchdown pass from starting quarterback Kris Edwards.
Edwards contributed a lot to Gunnison Valley’s scoreboard, throwing four touchdowns during the game. Overall, Edwards completed 381 yards passing.
White scored three times, twice on pass completions and once rushing. He contributed to the defense as well, making three sacks.
The Badgers scored only once when they got a touchdown in the second quarter. But they failed to make the extra point and stayed at six points until the end-game buzzer.
The Bulldogs play North Sevier at home tomorrow at 7 p.m. and then face Kanab on Friday, Sept. 2.
