It’s bad enough they both have “spring” in their names. Big Spring and Boiling Springs entered Week 7 sharing 5-1 records, undefeated division records, and high-scoring offenses. Boiling Springs would strike first with a Jack Laing 36-yard field goal to make it 3-0 Bubblers. The Bulldogs would answer right back with an Ethan Eisenberg pass to Tyler Schmidt to make it 7-3 Big Spring. Onto the second, and now it’s the Bubbler’s turn as Collin Lunde airs it out to Carson Garvey who jumps up to make the catch for the TD to make it 10-7 Boiling Springs. Joey Menk would add a 16-yard rushing TD to extend the lead to 17-7. And one more time before the half, again it’s Boiling Springs with Joey Menk making the catch, and some moves for the 73-yard score to make it 24-7. Both teams would trade scores throughout the second half but ultimately it was Boiling Springs coming out on top, 44-28.
