Bradenton Chr. 32, Calvary Chr. 7

CLEARWATER — On a rain-soaked, sloppy field, Bradenton Christian spoiled Calvary Christian's homecoming Friday with a 32-7 win.

Behind a smash-mouth performance from their offensive line, the Panthers rolled up 304 yards on the ground and ran for four touchdowns.

"They punched us in the mouth early and we had no answer," Warriors coach Chris Rivera said. "They were physical and came to work."

After a scoreless first quarter, the Panthers scored 13 in the second quarter and never looked back.

"We've won games in this fashion," Panthers coach Alan Gerber said. "The game dictates what we have to do and the field conditions made us run a lot."

The Warriors (2-4, 2-2) got on the board late in the fourth quarter when Zach Hubbard found his brother Johnny Hubbard, who made a great catch off a tipped pass for a 60-yard touchdown. Blake Kennedy added the point after for Calvary's only points.
