Amherst quarterback Marcus Gladowski (3) totaled over 200 yards rushing and five touchdowns in the win over Bonduel
Amherst 47, Bonduel 20
In a showdown between two top-five ranked teams, it was the traditional power, Amherst, flexing their muscle to take control of the CWC-Large, thanks in part to the performance of Marcus Gladowski. He finished with 202 yards rushing and five touchdowns to lead his Falcons to the 27-point road win.
“Defensively, I knew we were going to have our work cut out for us,” said Bonduel head coach James Westrich after the game. “We had some missed assignments, didn’t get off the ball as fast as we needed to on the d-line a little bit, but we tried to make some adjustments to turn the game and [we had a] lack of communication stuff like that. They force you to be disciplined and we weren’t very disciplined on defense.”
Westrich liked what he saw from the offense, but was disappointed in penalties which stalled drives. The Bonduel rushing attack was held mostly in check, but the Bears scored two of their touchdowns through the air. Isaac Garside was on the receiving end of both, including a 68-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. While Bonduel gave Amherst a fight, they know they’ve got work to do if they want to compete for a conference title.
“We’re close,” Westrich said of his team. “We’re not quite there yet. We still have a young team in a lot of spots..The season’s not lost. It’s one loss. We have a tough game coming up next week. We either get better or we fold up shop and we’re not going to fold up shop, so we’re going to come back and get back to work tomorrow.”
Bonduel will put the loss behind them as they prepare for a tough road contest against Shiocton.
