Bowling Green School defeated Adams County Christian School, 7-0, in a home scrimmage on Friday and will begin the regular season on Saturday.
The teams played two 10-minute halves in Friday’s scrimmage.
“When (ACCS) coach (David) King comes into town, he brings a good team and they do a good job,” Bowling Green School coach Riley Boudreaux said. They’re big up front. They’re bigger than us, but I think we’re faster as a whole. We played well. They’re going to be good in 5A.”
The touchdown came on a pass from Rashaan Duke to Steven Scott Cooper from 30-yards out. The score was set up by a long run from Wayne Ray.
Duke threw for 167 yards on 11-of-15 with the touchdown and an interception.
Cade Knight caught five passes for 62 yards.
Cooper made four receptions for 86 yards and the touchdown.
Jekorvian Long made one catch of 18 yards.
On the ground, Ray tallied 45 yards on five carries.
Defensively, Kengie Gordon recovered a fumbled snap by Adams County Christian School.
On Saturday, Bowling Green begins its regular season in the Southeastern Commission of Independent Schools Kickoff Classic at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Ala.
Bowling Green faces the Gateway Gators out of Georgia at 4 p.m. Gateway won the Georgia Independent Schools Association Class AA title, 52-17, over Terrell Academy.
“They’re a good, tough team,” Boudreaux said. “They won a state championship last year. They play tough. They get a lot of guys to the ball on defense. They run a power, veer offense. It’s on turf at 4 p.m., so it’ll be a hot one, so we need to make sure our guys stay hydrated all week.
“We have to tackle their quarterback. He runs really well. He understands the scheme and where he needs to be. He can hurt you. Offensively, we need the same performance from ‘Pop’ (Rashaan Duke). Be efficient. We’re going to spread the ball around. We just need to execute and not turn the ball over and we should be fine.”
