The game was never in doubt for Grand Blanc, as the Bobcats rattled off 27 points in the opening quarter and eventually took a 41-0 lead by half.

Ryder Brotebeck tossed an eight-yard touchdown to Cedric Givens to open the floodgates for the Bobcats. Nick Erlenbeck then returned a pair of punts for touchdowns, totaling 31 and 27 yards respectively. Tyler Leedom ended the first quarter with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Luke Bogan.

The second quarter saw a change under center for Grand Blanc, as Easton Edwards threw two touchdown passes. The initial score was a 29-yard pass to Latrel Fordham, followed by a 45-yard bomb to Ethan Aspberger. The only scoring in the second half was an 18-yard field goal by Colton Alexander.

Brotebeck went 1-for-1 through the air with his eight-yard score as his only completion. Leedom went 4-for- 4 with 57 yards and a touchdown. Edwards went 4-for-5 with two scores.

Grand Blanc is at Flint Powers Catholic tomorrow at Atwood Stadium. On the ground, Jalen Jones led the Bobcats with 68 yards on eight carries. Brotebeck also ran for 64 yards on seven touches. Edwards also gained 27 yards on two carries, while Gionni Broughton added four rushes for 21 yards. Sylvester Jones also had an eight-yard carry.

Bogan was the only Bobcat receiver to haul in multiple passes, catching two balls for 17 yards and a score. On the other side of the ball, Zach Saunders led Great Blanc with three tackles.

Grand Blanc, 5-2 , is at Flint Powers Catholic, 4-3, tomorrow night.
