Terriers fall in D-2 title game
RUTLAND — The top-seeded Burr and Burton varsity football team capped off a perfect season with a 28-7 decision over No. 2 Bellows Falls in Saturday's Division 2 championship game at Rutland High School.
BBA quarterback Griff Stalcup was 20-of-31 through the air for 192 yards and a pair of scores. He also ran the ball 11 times for 43 yards.
Ray Gormley's nine-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter gave the Bulldogs the lead. But the Terriers would pull even at 7-7 prior to the break thanks to quarterback Zac Streeter's TD on a fourth-down play.
In the second half, Stalcup fired a 29-yard scoring strike to Sean Apps and a 19-yard TD pass to Carter Vickers. And Will Tucker added an eight-yard burst to the house.
Running back Jahyde Bullard paced the 9-2 Terriers with 36 rushing yards on 17 totes.
Bellows Falls went 8-1 during the regular season to earn the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. The Terriers advanced with a 34-21 victory over No. 3 Burlington in the semis, behind Bullard's 190 rushing yards and a couple of defensive scores.
