The Bears couldn’t get the offense going in Bunkie on Thursday night as they found themselves on the losing side of a 35-2 blowout.
Block’s defense played well the first quarter; the Panthers were driving the ball down the field before Chad Green intercepted a pass. The pick came in the red zone and kept the Panthers from getting any points until late in the quarter.
With 12 seconds on the clock in the first quarter Bunkie’s QB punched the ball in for the touchdown on a short 2-yard run. Bunkie elected to kick the PAT and it was good. Going into the second quarter the Bears found themselves down by a touchdown.
Early in the second quarter the Bears moved the ball down field on a couple big plays and looked to tie the game or possibly take the lead. Unfortunately, Bunkie picked off Joseph Curry’s pass on the 3-yard line to end their touchdown chances.
The next play Block got pressure on Bunkie’s QB in their own end zone and forced him to make an ill-advised throw. The pass was to nobody and the play resulted in an intentional grounding call and a safety for the Bears defense. This made the score 7-2 in favor of Bunkie.
The safety came with 10:55 left in the second quarter, and Bunkie decided to make the quarter theirs after that. The Panthers offense scored three touchdowns before the half. Block had multiple turnovers that the Panthers capitalized on. At halftime the score was 28-2.
After halftime, Bunkie would score one more time to make the score 35-2 and secure a win for the Panthers.
It is homecoming week for the Bears (1-3) and they will have a home game vs Bolton (3-1) this Saturday night at 7pm.
