Bellows Falls hosted Milton during a football game on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021.

WESTMINSTER — Milton quarterback Kayden Burke spiked the ball out of frustration late in the first quarter of Friday evening’s varsity football game on Hadley Field.

It was the only time the visitors did Gronk’s move all night.

Bellows Falls limited the Yellow Jackets to just 61 total yards from scrimmage and also forced three turnovers during a 55-0 rout.

“We have a great defensive line, our linebackers are amazing, and our secondary is coming along,” said BF senior Jonathan Terry. “I’m just happy to be part of this team.”

Patrick Barbour, Peter Kamel and Trenton Fletcher all recorded a sack for the Purple Gang. Jamison Nystrom intercepted two passes, including a 60-yard pick six that looked Deion Sanders like.

“This team is just all around amazing,” Terry noted. “Our offensive line did a great job leading the way for our great backfield.”

Jake Moore, Dillan Perry, Kevin Patterson, Barbour and Kamel paved the way for 231 rushing yards in the first half. A 65-yard run to the house by Lober was the highlight.

Terry, who had “HBD JT” written on a wrist band in honor of his dad’s birthday, reached paydirt three times. The quarterback scored on a 17-yard keeper and a one-yard sneak before going the distance on a 55-yard punt return.

“I just followed our lead blockers to the end zone,” he said of his scoring plays. “It felt amazing (to score three times). There’s nothing like it.”

The Terriers also got rushing touchdowns from Jeb Monier and Walker James, and a second by Lober. The school band played its celebration song after each one.

“We just want to keep it going and reach our goal, which is a state championship,” Terry mentioned.

The 5-0 Terriers will host Spaulding on Friday night at 7.
