Bay Area Christian (1-1) came out firing out on all cylinders Friday night as the Broncos defeated the Danbury Panthers (0-2), 23-2.

The Broncos kicked a 37-yard field goal in the first quarter to take a 3-0 lead. Bay Area Christian’s Wesley Barnes (71 total rushing yards) scored a 45-yard touchdown and a 7-yard touchdown. The Panthers blocked an extra point and returned it for two points to be down 16-2 at halftime.

No one scored in the third quarter, but the Broncos’ running back Andrew Brown (56 total rushing yards) scored a 4-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to seal the game. Payton Deegan and Cole Holloman each had an interception in the game.

Bay Area Christian will face Cooper at 7 p.m. Friday at home.

Editor’s note: A final score for the O’Connell at Pasadena First Baptist game was not available before press deadline Friday night.
