Visiting Bridgeport didn't waste any time Friday night taking control of its Big 10 Conference contest with North Marion here at Husky Field.
The Indians bounced back impressively after their last-second loss to Class AAA power Wheeling Park last week, scoring on their first three possessions Friday to amass a 21-0 lead after one quarter en route to a 28-0 victory over the Huskies on a clear, crisp late-summer evening.
The victory improved Bridgeport to 2-1 overall and to 2-0 in the Big 10 Conference. North Marion, meanwhile, fell to 0-3 overall and to 0-2 in the league.
“They were clicking on all cylinders early,” said North coach Daran Hays, who watched his team allow scoring drives of 72, 93 and 77 yards in the first quarter and surrender 304 yards on the ground to the Indians in the first half.
