Battle Ground Academy had to wait an extra day to play its first-round TSSAA Division II Class AA playoff game with Harding Academy, but its 55-14 victory was worth the wait.
The Wildcats’ Drew Martin threw for 335 yard and six touchdowns on just 10 attempts, as BGA racked up 535 yards of offense.
Tiy Reed had three catches for 166 yards. Jack Jewell caught two scores, while Ollie Reese, Kel Hawkins and Garnett Hollins each had one.
BGA’s Conner Mitchell had eight solo stops and 11 assists to lead the defense. Chico Bennett had 6 1/2 tackles and three sacks.
The game was postponed to Saturday after Harding Academy had travel issues in getting to Franklin.
BGA (10-1) hosts University School of Jackson next Friday.
