#3 Bellevue West knocked off #2 Millard South 49-29 Friday night at Buell Stadium.
The Thunderbirds showcased their versatility on offense and their power on defense for a genuine full-team effort in this win.
A Worthy Adversary
Bellevue West had to pull out all the stops to bring in this victory against an excellent Millard South squad. The Thunderbirds may have scored first, but Millard South rushed for both a TD and a 2-point conversion shortly afterward, putting them up 8-6 at the end of the first quarter.
But the Bellevue West defense would not let up, resulting in multiple failed third down conversion attempts by the Patriots. By the time C.J Lilienkamp plucked a red-zone interception in the fourth quarter, it was clear that they weren’t pulling any punches.
