Boomers bounce back

© 2017-Newport News Times

It took four games, but the Boomers finally found their mojo after a 52-0 throttling over Myrtle Point on Friday, Sept. 29, putting an end to Toledo’s four-game losing streak to start the season. It was a game reminiscent of the 2016 season, when the Boomers averaged 34 points per game en route to an eight-win season. Toledo had 387 yards of total offense led by freshman Donny Villanueva, who finished 163 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. On Friday, the Boomers put the game away in the first two drives by scoring two touchdowns in their first three plays from scrimmage. Toledo scored on the final play of the first half to take a 45-0 lead into halftime. The entire second half was played with a running clock. Toledo’s non-league schedule was a meat grinder, facing three teams currently ranked in the OSAA top-six. The short-handed Boomers were on the wrong end of blowouts and running clocks, losing their four games by a combined score of 208-30.
