Bowling Green School was defeated by Presbyterian Christian School, 35-18, in a road game that was held on Friday.

“We did not have two full practices last week due to a number of kids out,” Bowling Green School coach Phill Junkins said. “We did not have our entire team all week. On Thursday, we had the largest number of kids we had all week and you’re not going to hit on Thursday. We’re not going to make a whole bunch of excuses, but it’s a challenging thing to go play on Friday night against an opponent who’s bigger than you. You’ve got 65 kids standing on the (other) sideline and you’ve got kids still getting over flu, strep and things of that nature. The one thing I will say is that I can’t complain about our kids’ effort. The effort was there. We just weren’t at 100 percent. We continue to work to find a way to throw the football. They played 11 men within five yards of the football and we still rushed for 228 yards. That tells you right there that the effort was there.”

Josiah Miller ran for 116 yards on 23 carries and two touchdowns.

Kyron Cowart rushed for 82 yards on 14 attempts and a score.

Defensively, Zeke Burford made four tackles.

Austin Bovia, Trey Champagne, Jonathan Traylor, Maddox Magee and Carmin Seal all had three stops.

Bowling Green is 3-4 this year.

Presbyterian Christian School is 4-3 this season.

Bowling Green will be back in action on Friday against Parklane Academy at home.

“They’re kind of like the other ones, fast, quick and in a hurry,” Junkins said. “They’ve got a good quarterback and coach (Ron) Rushing is one of the best coaches in this league. He does a good job of preparing and we’ve gotta be ready to defend the pass. We must clean up our offense and we must be able to run the football, but we’ve gotta be able to complete more passes than we have before and that’ll be a challenge for us.”

Parklane Academy is 4-3 this season.

Parklane Academy defeated Bowling Green, 33-13, last year.
