BNL takes advantage
of turnovers to stun
Floyd Central 28-21

GALENA – Misery loved victory on Friday night.
Braving a cold and constant rain, down after a gut-punch turnover in the second half, staring into a relentless sky and wondering about its forlorn destiny, Bedford North Lawrence shook off its troubles like a wet hound.
Yes, it was wretched, those conditions. Even on Floyd Central’s perfect artificial turf, holding on to the football was an imperfect science and often impossible. Turnovers were just a slip away, and for once the bounce of Fate went BNL’s direction. Finally.
The Stars took advantage of two Floyd Central fumbles in the second half to stun the Highlanders 28-21. Down 14-7 following a sack-fumble return for a touchdown midway through the third quarter, BNL did not melt. A team that had bore more than its share of adversity and bad breaks finally caught a good one.
