Huerta, Bulls blast Burkburnett

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, September 22, 2012

Bridgeport’s Gabe Huerta torched Burkburnett on Friday night for 263 rushing yards and six touchdowns in the Bulls’ 48-31 victory.

Huerta’s combination of speed and power propelled him to five first-half touchdowns – including one receiving – as Bridgeport built a 34-10 lead at intermission.

The senior running back scored on runs of nine, four, one and 28 yards, also catching a 25-yard touchdown pass enroute to a huge offensive night.

The Bulldogs came back with two third-quarter touchdowns, cutting the deficit to 34-24 as Bobby Ingram scored from 1 and 68 yards out.

But Huerta iced the game with a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Bridgeport quarterback Hunter Gannt threw for 220 yards and a touchdown in the win.

With their record now even at 2-2, the Bulls will return to the friendly confines next week to host Princeton in their homecoming game.
