In one of the final sporting event held before the CPS Teachers
Strike, the Kenwood Broncos football team dominated Schurz High School
50-0 on Thursday night during its Home Coming game held at Knute Rockne Stadium.
“I just like that I was able to get all of the guys in today,” said
Sinque Turner, head coach of the Broncos, after earning a 50- 0
blowout victory over Schurz on Thursday night. “(We) opened (the game)
up on the first carry and took it to the house.”
En route to their largest margin of victory of the season, the Broncos
dominated from start to finish and would open the game up on a 70 yard
touchdown run by running back Lewis Bond. Earning a 7-0 lead with
11:36 remaining in the first quarter.
Bond’s was amazing throughout the night, finishing with a game high
105 yards, two touchdowns on three carries and game MVP honors.
“(The play call was) 23 trap (and) the blocks was just there,” said
Lewis about his long touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage.
“It was (all) based on my preparation.”
Lewis explained, that in spite of it being a short week of playing
game’s between Saturday and Thursday, the Broncos offense was able to
practice on Sunday afternoon, in preparation of Thursday’s match-up
against Schurz.
The extra preparation to detail not only helped the Broncos offense on
Thursday night, but the defense as well. As junior cornerback Taylor
Clark (2) and freshmen Davonte Weathersby-Johnson (1) would combine
for three interceptions on the night, including a 3 yard interception
touchdown return by Johnson, en route to their third shutout of the
Final Score: Broncos 50, Schurz 0.
