Bowling Green School faced Cathedral Unit School in a scrimmage on Friday and will host a jamboree later this week.

“It went really well,” Bowling Green coach Riley Boudreaux said. “We played Cathedral, who is a really tough team. I was really excited with how the boys played. We’ve really only had three practices up to then. Playing against a 5A big physical team, I thought we stayed with them in physicality. The boys brought it with them.”

Nathan Jenkins had a big day for the Buccaneers.

He accounted for three touchdowns with two passing and one rushing. He ran for a score from 6 yards out.

He threw a touchdown pass to Josiah Miller and Dray Killingsworth. The one to Miller was a 15 yarder, while the scoring pass to Killingsworth was an 8-yard pass.

Cole Farris had a rushing touchdown from about 10 yards out.

Defensively, Gabe Joss and Peyton Sumrall intercepted a pass each.

The teams ran 12-play series and they worked on plays in the red zone.

On Friday, Bowling Green School will host a jamboree game against the Northshore Vultures with kickoff at 7 p.m. There will be one game that night.

Boudreaux said they are excited about letting players get work in against live action.

“It’s kind of the last review before the games start, see what we need to work on, see what we’re good at and see what we need to do to elevate our game,” Boudreaux said.

The game will be two 12-minute halves with a running clock.
