Bears Roll in Homecoming Win

A gorgeous homecoming Saturday at BSU got even better as the Bears rolled against the Westfield State Owls, with a 47-14 win at Swenson Field. Despite falling behind 7-0 early on BSU found their rhythm and the rest was history. The offense found its groove as the team improved to a 5-2 record and remained perfect in league play with a 5-0 record. Westfield continues a steady downfall as they have yet to record a win on the 7-week season. The Bears have DOMINATED this matchup over the past few seasons as Bridgewater has won the last 9 matchups against Westfield dating back to the 2011 season.

Junior Quarterback James Cahoon slung the rock for over 230 yards and added 3 TD on the afternoon. Kyle Torres was his favorite target as he found the Senior receiver five times for 93 yards and 1 TD. The Bears not only had it going well in the air but on the ground as well as Junior running back Adam Couch dialed up 100 yards on 15 carries. After leading 20-7 at the end of the half, BSU came out and put together a great drive on 13 plays. Running the ball in from the one, the Bears completed the 78-yard drive that deflated the Owls defense and put them up big after the first half. BSU would add twenty more points in the third quarter to put the game on ice. Converting on 10/14 third downs, the Bears never gave the Westfield defense a chance to get off the field when they thought they had the chance.

The defense showed out for Bridgewater as well as they forced two turnovers and held Westfield to under 100 yards on the ground.

Looking ahead for BSU, the boys look to keep it rolling as they continue their schedule in the MASCAC when they host UMASS Dartmouth Saturday on Senior Day. The noon kickoff will have a great pre-game ceremony as we thank the seniors for four great years. Continued success from the team has created a certain buzz around campus and we hope the Bears can keep it rolling this upcoming weekend.
