BAINBRIDGE – On Friday night, the Bainbridge-Guilford Bobcats hosted Deposit/Hancock where they came out with a 37-0 victory. This was the Bobcats’ second win of the season.

BG started off strong as they drove the ball down the field on the first possession where Damon Seymour scored on a five yard rush. Connor Davy also scored late in the first quarter on a 12 yard rush.

BG would not stop there, scoring three more times before halftime. The defense, with help from Sam Fernette, scored a safety with Deposit deep in their own zone. When BG got the ball back, Ethan Beames took the ball to the house with a 55 yard kickoff return.

With 18 seconds left, Tony Ladd scored on a four yard rush for the Bobcats to lead 30-0 at halftime.

A big lead that didn’t hail a comeback from Deposit as the defense kept them quiet, just allowing 43 passing yards. But, essentially, Deposit only had 10 yards of offense as they could not rush on the Bobcats as they received negative yardage.

BG, however, scored once more on a one yard rush by Seymour for his second touchdown of the day.
