ALBION - Pierce played every bit like you'd expect an undefeated number 2 ranked team to play, going up by double digits early and winning going away in the 4th quarter, in a 48-26 drubbing of Boone Central Friday Night.

Blue Jays QB Abram Scholting accounted for five TDs, 4 through the air and one on the ground, as he hooked with Jackson Wachholz for a pair of 58-yard scoring passes in the 1st period to put Pierce up 13-0.

The Cardinals wouldn't go away quietly, as Alex Christo and Parker Borer scored touchdowns to twice cut double-digit Blue Jays leads in half, before Keenan Valverde scored late in the 2nd to make it 27-13 at halftime.

Pierce held serve in the second half, with Scholting and Valverde chipping in more scores, and holding on to win 48-26.

The Blue Jays (8-0) finish the regular season at home against West Point-Beemer, while Boone Central is home against St. Paul.
