Bulldogs rout Broncos to win home opener
Three days of rest was all the Baldwin High Bulldogs needed to rout Spring Hill in their home opener Friday night, 57-26.
Baldwin jumped on the Broncos early and often with 39 points in the first half. Senior Sam Beecher rushed for a trio of touchdowns and threw for another in the first half. Five Bulldogs scored touchdowns Friday as Baldwin played its first game in Liston Stadium this season.
"For only having three days to prepare for a team, I'm very proud of our team executed tonight," Baldwin coach Mike Berg said. "Mentally, it was a very draining game Monday night. We showed up tonight and played for each other."
Baldwin (2-1) suffered its first loss Monday night to Gardner-Edgerton, but will host De Soto next week for its homecoming game.
