Battle Ground Academy’s Nick Semptimphelter threw four first-half touchdown passes, as the Wildcats stayed undefeated with a 49-7 road win at Chattanooga’s Boyd Buchanan.
Semptimphelter was 15 of 21 passing for 287 yards. His 37-yard pass to Chico Bennett on the last play of the first quarter helped the Wildcats to a 21-0 lead.
BGA out-gained Boyd Buchanan, 416-185, and picked off a pass, too.
Semptimphelter hit Antonio Stevens and Wilson Parker with touchdown passes of 1 and 25 yards to give BGA a 14-0 first-quarter lead after kicker Jack Sauder hit both extra points.
Briston Bennett added a 5-yard, second-quarter scoring run. Semptimphelter then hit Stevens with another first-half touchdown pass, that one, from 41 yards.
The lead was 42-0 at half. Boyd Buchanan avoided the shutout with David Dixon’s 2-yard run with 10 seconds left in the game.
