The skinny

After outscoring its opponents 122-0 over the first two weeks, Aurora Christian (3-0) was finally scored on Saturday, but continued its domination with a Suburban Christian Blue rout.

Turning point

The second play from scrimmage was a 79-yard touchdown pass from junior Austin Bray to Brandon Walgren, and the Eagles never looked back.

The star

Bray didn’t attempt a pass in the second half, but he was pretty good in the first. He completed only 11 of his 25 attempts, but he totaled 267 yards and four touchdowns.

By the numbers

It took opponents 109 minutes, 58 seconds to score a point on Aurora Christian this season. The run came to an end when David Walton found Kurtis Duff for a 21-yard touchdown in the third quarter for Walther (0-3).

Quotable

‘‘When we beat teams that we should beat, we have to go in and dominate.” — Aurora Christian coach Don Beebe
