CINCINNATI - Two teams with high playoff aspirations met Friday night at Gilligan Field, but it was the Bellevue Tigers that looked more ready for the postseason as they dismantled the Lloyd Juggernauts on a rainy and cold fall night, 30-7.
Bellevue (6-4) picked up their fifth win over their last six games while the Juggernauts lost for the second time in three weeks after starting the season 6-1.
Dylan Huff once again shouldered the load for the Tigers as he tallied 160 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. Branden Lawrey added a rushing score of his own and Tyler Ackerson connected Cody Corman for a 19-yard TD pass to round out the scoring for the victors. Bellevue’s defense did their part too, holding a very capable Lloyd (7-3) offense to just 107 yards on the ground.
The Juggernauts only points came on the game’s first score as junior Brian Warren scampered in for 44-yard touchdown.
Both teams now turn their attention towards the postseason. Bellevue is set to welcome Eminence.
