It was a rainy, slightly windy cool evening but the weather didn’t spoil the Arcanum Homecoming festivities, which saw Katie Harmon crowned Queen and Matt Albright dubbed King.
The weather may not have spoiled the homecoming…but the Bradford Railroaders did their part to spoil the game.
The Roaders raced out to a 46-0 advantage in the first half leaving Arcanum shell-shocked.
Senior running back James Canan ran for 281 first half yards and 5 touchdowns to lead the way for Bradford and he was done for the evening.
Quarterback Brandon Wysong tossed a 15-yard pass to Dallas Cassel who hauled it in for the 6th touchdown of the half. Cassel and Wysong also hooked up for a two-point conversion on a pass as well.
Jake Cline got in the scoring column rushing for 4 two-point conversions of his own to conclude the Bradford scoring.
Despite the offensive explosion by Bradford in the first half…it was the play of the defensive front for the Roaders that stood out the most.
Arcanum ran 26 plays in the first half matching the same amount of plays Bradford ran…but the Roaders were stingy on defense. In fact they sacked Arcanum quarterback Dallas Johnson 4 times in the first half and only allowed them to cross midfield once.
“It was great performance by our defense tonight”, said Coach Curtis Enis. “We are fortunate to have a dedicated defensive coordinator, Jason Brewer who does an outstanding job of preparing these young men each week”, added Enis. “The defense did a good job of playing in control and shooting the gaps to disrupt much of what they wanted to do,” continued Enis.
Arcanum was able to generate some offense in the 2nd half behind the running of Mason Garber who ran for 99 yards and Parker Burhman for 100 yards and dented the scoreboard twice.
It was quarterback Dallas Johnson who got them on the scoreboard on an 11-yard and a 25-yard run. However, it was too few points too late as Bradford held on for a 46-13 win to raise their record to 6-1 overall and 5-1 in conference. The Roaders are in sole possession of 2nd place and one game behind Covington in the conference.
For the game Bradford totaled 451 yards doubling the 225 yards of Arcanum.
Bradford travels to Miami East (4-3, 4-2) next week looking to keep their 2nd place spot in the league while gaining valuable computer points needed to gain a playoff spot in week 11.
Arcanum drops to 2-5 overall and 1-5 in conference and will travel next week to Mississinawa Valley still looking for their first win of the season.
