Ballard stays perfect in varsity football finale

Ballard High School remained perfect (8-0 overall) for the season in prep football after beating Bainbridge 49-20 on Friday, Oct. 25.

It was the final game of the regular season on the Spartan (4-4) calendar.

The Beavers led early and throughout, except in the game’s final quarter when Bainbridge at last outscored their host, though it was by then too late to turn the tide.

In the first, the Beavers led 14-3 and the score stayed the same in the second, putting Ballard up 28-6 at the half.

In the third, Bainbridge didn’t manage to get on the board at all, with Ballard again scoring 14.

In the fourth, the Spartans added 14 points to their score and Ballard just seven.

The Spartan star of the first half was kicker Quinn Millerd, who put the island squad on the board initially with a 38-yard field goal in the first and then doubled the score in the second from 43 yards.

In the Spartans’ fourth-quarter scoring spree, it was a 65-yard pass from senior Franco Abullarade that set Jack Hensley up to score the team’s first touchdown of the night.

Millerd again came through with the kick.

Then, finally, it was a 10-yard run by Charlie Hughes that finished the Spartan offensive effort (Millerd once again made good with the kick).

Gabe Todd led the team’s passing efforts with 130 yards across a dozen attempts.

Rushing-wise, Charlie Hughes managed 51 yards in eight attempts.

Austin Coupland was the main Spartan receiver, notching 118 yards in just three catches.

Elliot Weaver led the island team in tackling, racking up four and two assists.
