Full game stats were not available from the Cedaredge coaching staff. Those that were provided by Bruins' head coach Brandon Milholland told a one-sided tale.
Tentatively, the Bruins collected 151 yards through the air on nine of 11 passing by Cedaredge quarterback Dante Markley. There were two touchdowns included in the passing stats.
Markley was busy running and handing the ball off as well as the Bruins amassed 258 yards on the ground on 28 carries and scored four touchdowns.
Carter Wasser had two touchdowns and 135 yards rushing. Carter started the scoring parade for the Bruins after a tipped pass by defensive end Colton Ensley ended up in Carter's hands for a pick six.
Milholland noted there were five different players who got into the scoring act against the Panthers. Markley, Carter Wasser, Reid Gates, Mickey Madelino and Kyle Ward all contributed scores for the Bruins.
Madelino scored on a kick return and Gates took a punt back for a score.
Cade Wasser highlighted the passing attack with a 40-plus yard reception from Markley.
"Dante Markley continued to be solid at the quarterback position Friday night," noted Milholland.
Cedaredge will be busy getting ready for its next opponent, Paonia, this Friday night in Cedaredge at 7 p.m.
The Bruins will not be overlooking the tough Eagles this coming Friday. According to Milholland, "Now we need to get ready for a competitive team in Paonia. I anticipate a great game. We will have to work harder this week in practice. I have heard how tough Paonia is, so we will have to be prepared to hit. I know it will be a great physical matchup."
