Dawgs blank Walker Valley

Brad Taylor was quite modest about his Bearden Bulldogs’ 44-0 drubbing of Walker Valley Friday night in Bradley County.

As first reported in Farragut First Edition ( Aug. 21 about this season-opening rout, “We had a lot of breaks go our way,” said Taylor, BHS head coach. That included a 376-106 edge in total yards.

Already up 23-0 at halftime, Taylor said his Bulldogs “were able to kinda finish — to keep that intensity and that focus up in the second half.”

Taylor said quarterback Kyle Riemer “managed our offense well.” Riemer passed for 171 yards (14 of 21), including TD passes of 20 yards to Drew Williamson and 28 to Tyler Graham.

Devrin Young, junior standout running back, led the BHS ground game with 167 yards rushing, scoring on runs of 23 and 10 yards — with 270 all-purpose yards.

“Devrin came out and had a great game,” Taylor said.

Other Bulldogs scores came on 1-yard runs from Peyton Landers and Michael Cakmes.

Defensive end Davis Tull led BHS in tackles with eight, including four solo. Linebacker Logan Candela had one interception while defensive end Brett Parisi’s quarterback sack earned a safety.

Kicker Ben Sisco converted all six extra point attempts.

Along the offensive front, Taylor said a “couple of new guys showed up and played well,” adding that included junior Jalyn Stewart, “who got to play a lot more than he probably expected. … Had a couple of guys rotating in who hadn’t had a lot of experience in a varsity game that I’m really, really happy with.”
