There is no quarterback controversy at Annville-Cleona. Junior Bours and Josh Speraw are competitive teammates who want the same things.
But right now, Bours gives the Little Dutchmen the best chance to win.
On Thursday night at Octorara High School in Chester County, it was Bours who led A-C to their first triumph of the season, a 39-30 victory over the home-standing Braves. While Speraw scored a pair of Little Dutchmen touchdowns, Bours had his hand in Annville-Cleona’s other four, a couple with his legs and a pair with his arm.
Bours also ran in two touchdowns, and tossed a two more. A junior, Bours’ two pass completions both went for long touchdowns and he piled up 92 yards rushing on ten keepers.
Bours’ 49-yard scoring strike to Tyler Long in the first period gave the Little Dutchmen an early 6-0 cushion. His 50-yard touchdown toss to Jalen Price late in the third period pushed Annville-Cleona’s lead to 39-16.
But it was Bours’ earlier three-yard scamper into the end zone which would prove to be the game-winner. Just before halftime, Bours had ripped off a 76-yard touchdown jaunt that gave the Little Dutchmen a 26-10 lead.
