East Buchanan and its highflying offense rolled over Lawson 40-0. Junior quarterback Colby Rapp had a huge first half throwing four touchdown passes.

The first score was a 6-yard pass to Zac Johnson in the corner of the endzone. Austin Potter took a direct snap and ran for the two-point conversion.

In the second quarter Rapp connected again with Johnson from 12 yards out. Rapp two-point pass was good to Grant Minson.

With 4:22 left in the first half Rapp threw a high fade for his third touchdown to Johnson from the 7-yard line. The duo also scored the two-point pass.

With just 1:42 left in the half Rapp threw a screen pass to Jason Daugherity who scampered 47 yards for the score. Rapp then hit Elliot Fortney for the two-point conversion.

Rapp finished the game throwing his fifth touchdown pass to Nate Griffin from 11-yards out. Even when the Bulldogs made mistakes it worked out for them. When they went for two, there was a holding call, backing the ball up 10 yards. The Bulldogs then committed two false start calls moving the ball back 10 more yards. Unaffected, Rapp found Daugherity over the middle for the final two points of the game.

After the game Bulldogs coach Kevin Bryan was pleased with his team and spoke about his defense.

“Over the last three weeks we have really started to gel,” Bryan said. “Our defense has allowed a 6, a 6, and a 0. They believe in each other right now and are swarming to the ball. We are not very big, but we are quick.”

When quarterback Colby Rapp was asked about his experience he said:

“I got to play some varsity my freshman, and sophomore years,” Rapp said. “So when I make a change at the line, or we see we have a quick pass we take. This is now finally my team.”

The Bulldogs who are now 6-0 will be home next week to play against the North Platte Panthers. The Lawson Cardinals dropped to 4-2 and they will be on the road against the Penny Hornets.
