CHINOOK — Bridger Vogl, Ethan Triplett and solid defense helped No. 3 Belt take care of business Friday on the road at No. 5 Chinook, as the Huskies won 46-12.
Belt grabbed an 8-0 lead in the first quarter as Triplett caught a touchdown pass from Vogl. Both defenses held firm until Jeremy Nebel took a toss left and found the end zone to help push the score to 16-0 in favor of the Huskies. Triplett blocked a punt to help set up that TD.
Chinook got its run game going in the second quarter and capped a scoring drive with a touchdown run by quarterback Levi Jensen to make it 16-6. But Belt drove the field again for another TD to take a 22-6 lead with 2:53 left before intermission.
Belt got the ball first to open the third quarter and took 6:00 off the clock on a drive that culminated with another Vogl-to-Triplett touchdown pass, making the score 28-6.
Chinook later drove to the Belt 5-yard line but the Huskies’ defense stood strong and forced a turnover on downs.
Belt later got the dagger on a 30-yard TD pass from Vogl to Reese Paulson for a 34-6 advantage, cementing the win.
