GILBERTVILLE — Top-ranked Don Bosco improved to 2-0 on the season with an 87-8 rout of Baxter’s football team at home on Friday night during an 8-man non-district game.
“They are good. They smothered our offense, and our defense couldn’t make the one-on-one tackle,” said Baxter assistant coach Zach Hasselbrink after the game.
Baxter head coach Rob Luther missed his first football game in 31 years after having surgery last week.
Sophomore Grant Borts led the Bolts (1-2) with 50 rushing yards and a touchdown. Sophomore Rory Heer had 23 receiving yards and senior Cole Damman threw for 22 yards.
Borts led the defense with five tackles, while freshmen Jake Travis and Cody Damman had three tackles.
Baxter travels to Melcher-Dallas at 7 p.m. this Friday.
