With superior defense and outstanding offense, the John Glenn Bobcats started off their 2007 season with a convincing 35-6 win over the Cadillac Vikings.
Beginning the first quarter with the Vikings on offense, the Bobcat defense held Cadillac, forced a fumbled punt on fourth down, to gain possession of the ball.
Nearly four minutes into the game, Bangor's first touchdown was scored by Senior running back Chris Schumann. Junior, Ty Richards launched the extra point through the goal posts making the score 7-0.
Schumann added two more touchdowns in the first quarter with runs of five and forty-seven yards.
In the second quarter, Glenn continued to dominate the field. Scoring the last touchdown before halftime was Junior fullback, Matt Balen, with an 8 yard touchdown reception from quarterback and fellow junior, Richard Watson.
The score was 28-0 at the end of the first half.
