Wellington-Napoleon erupted for 35 points in the first period as it rolled to a 60-14 victory over visiting Orrick Friday night at Bodenhamer Field. The Tigers took advantage of four Orrick turnovers as they improved to 7-1 overall and 6-0 against league competition. Orrick falls to 0-8.
Jacob Beckemeyer got things going in the opening frame for the No. 6-ranked Tigers. The Tiger defense, which allowed 205 yards of offense to the visiting Bearcats, forced a three-and-out on their first series. Christian Bryant returned the punt 65 yards for a touchdown, followed Beckemeyer’s run for conversion. Beckemeyer, the senior quarterback, then threw four scoring passes in the quarter. He connected with Bryant for a 25-yard strike and after he picked off a Bearcat pass, Beckemeyer hit Justin Willard for a 34-yard touchdown pass one play later, followed by a 28-yard strike to Blaine Beissenherz and an 80-yard bomb to Jake Ruskey for a 35-0 lead.
