WESTMINSTER — About 24 hours after he was served Mac ‘n Cheese during a traditional pregame meal, Jed Lober was being fed once again.
The senior running back carried the ball 11 times for 153 yards and three touchdowns to help Bellows Falls to a 43-14 rout of Spaulding on Friday evening.
The Terriers are now just two wins away from a perfect regular season.
A 10-yard sweep to the house by Lober gave the Purple Gang a 6-0 lead. He would add two short plunges into the end zone as the hosts built a 43-0 advantage.
“Let’s go Tide!” a spirited Spaulding fan kept screaming from the track around the field, sounding very much like a cheerleader each time.
The visitors went to their bag of tricks often. Zack Wilson completed a halfback pass to Christian Titus for 10 yards and also went Philly Special by tossing the ball to quarterback Andrew Trottier for seven more.
Bellows Falls’ first-string defense dominated the game for the most part. Harrison Gleim and Jeb Monier combined for three sacks, Jesse Darrell intercepted a pass, and Peter Kamel made a tackle for loss on a 4th-and-1 play.
The home crowd was also treated to QB Jonathan Terry’s 30-yard naked bootleg to paydirt along with short TD runs by Caden Haskell and Monier.
BF’s school band played some music following each score.
Trailing 43-0, the Tide put up 14 points with the clock running in the second half. Trottier connected with Wilson for a 25-yard TD strike and later hit Titus in stride for a 67-yarder.
The 6-0 Terriers will host rival Springfield on Friday night at 7.
