Game time is 7. Bellflower brings a 3-1 record that includes last week’s impressive 58-13 offensive display against Cerritos. And while quarterback Reggie Williams has been sharp, completing 27 of 56 passes for 362 yards and seven touchdowns, with just one interception, it is the ground game that has stolen most of the spotlight. The running game, which has taken a back seat but has served to complement the aerial display, is led by Eddie Martinez with 122 yards and a touchdown on 41 carries. Blood has the Matadores’ longest run of the season, a 25-yarder. Linebackers Chris Dunn, with 32 tackles, Zach Coelho (29), Tyler Halstead (25) and Brandon Stein (22) have anchored the defense. Stein has a sack and two interceptions, back Brett Gauthier has two interceptions and a fumble recovery, and Coelho has two fumble recoveries. — Roger Murray can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046, or by e-mail at [email protected]. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One of the early-season surprises in the Suburban League has been the evolvement of Bellflower’s run-oriented attack that has set them in good position to challenge perennial Suburban League contenders Mayfair and La Mirada. The Buccaneers travel to face the first of those challenges tonight, meeting La Mirada’s two-quarterback attack in Week 2 of league play.
