By Ross Martin St. Joseph News-Press
Savannah bludgeoned Bishop LeBlond with the big play throughout the first half.
But when called upon to stomp out the Golden Eagles’ will, Savannah put together an 80-yard march packed with power veer option midway through the third quarter. The Savages’ reserves added another touchdown to close out a 55-7 win at Eagle Stadium.
“We were flash early with the big plays and the big passes,” Savannah coach Mark Cole said, “but we’re still smash-mouth option football team. We’re still going to come out and pound the ball at you.”
Savannah — the defending Midland Empire Conference champions — never trailed but were threatened early.
Junior quarterback Zane Wilt, making his first start, threw for 116 yards on five completions and ran for another 87 on six carries. He accounted for three total touchdowns. Running back Andy Meyers’ led Savannah’s three-pronged rushing attack with 104 yards.
The Savages (1-0) scored on plays of 43, 49 and 33 yards on the way to a 34-7 halftime lead.
