NEW BERLIN – Those who overlook Bainbridge-Guilford may be in for an unwelcome surprise this season.
The Bobcats used a physical, quick defense and game-breaker running back, Dustin Ross, to knock off UV-Edmeston here Friday night, 32-14.
The Bobcats limited the Storm to just 62 yards through three periods, and thanks to an explosive, big-play offense, had complete control of the contest. “We know we have a tough schedule, and we just banded together like brothers,” said B-G senior quarterback Chris McGinnis, who tossed a pair of touchdown passes.
Ross was the momentum builder for his team and the momentum killer for the Storm. After a successful defensive stop on UV-E’s opening possession, Ross darted to the left and raced 61 yards for a touchdown on his first varsity carry. Later in the game and after UV-E scored its first touchdown, Ross scored again from 61 yards on nearly the identical play. He finished with 164 yards rushing in his first varsity game. “Not only does Dustin have speed, but he is elusive, too,” said B-G coach Tim Mattingly. “He’s a nice weapon to have, and I’m not sure UV-E understood the speed that he has.”
