BELL BUCKLE -- The Webb School football team continued to roll Friday night, picking up a non-conference win against the visiting Pleasant View Christian Warriors 48-12. With field conditions less than favorable, the team still managed to put the game away early and never looked back.

Opening Strike

A solid defensive effort by Webb forced the Warriors to punt on their opening drive.

Webb was then able to capitalize on a 47-yard punt return by junior Houston Jones, and on the next play, junior running back Rio Russell found a gap and ran the ball in for a 34-yard touchdown. Webb went up 7-0 following a successful PAT by junior kicker Zach Norris.

Russell continued to impress on the next possession, running it in from 28 yards and putting the Feet up 13-0. Later in the quarter, quarterback Zach Fenner connected with wide out Chris Burgoon for an 8-yard touchdown to go up 20-0. And, after a safety by the Webb defense, the Feet found themselves up 22-0 at the end of the first.

Webb didn't let off the gas in the second quarter, scoring twice on rushing touchdowns from Nick Tilton and Chase Hullett. They went into halftime up 35-0.

Slower Second Half

The game slowed after halftime, and the only score of the third quarter came off of a Pleasant View Christian touchdown. Offensive production was slower for the Feet in the second half, as they rotated some younger players into the lineup.

However, sparked by an interception from Jones early in the fourth quarter, Webb's offense went back to work, and found the end zone again off a 46-yard blast from Burgoon to extend their lead to 42-6. Pleasant View Christian responded with a 55-yard breakaway touchdown, but Webb fired right back. Nick Tilton found the end zone again and scored the final touchdown of the night.

While a 42-12 win on any night is nice, having it on senior night makes it that much sweeter for Webb seniors Ethan Arnold, Hunter Foley, Sam Coleman, and Momar Seck.

The Feet return home on Friday as Webb hosts SAS in the final regular season game of the year before diving into the postseason.
