Bulotovich tosses two TDs as Humphreys beat Seoul American for first time
CAMP HUMPHREYS, South Korea – For the first time in school history, Humphreys can claim a football victory over a Division I school - its DODEA-Korea rival Seoul American.
Brice Bulotovich went 10-for-20 for 151 yards and two touchdown passes and Miles Brice added a rushing touchdown as the Blackhawks held off a late charge by the Falcons for a 21-14 win on Friday.
“It feels wonderful,” coach Steven Elliott said of the Blackhawks’ first win over the Falcons in three tries. “But it was a hard-fought game. It came down to the final minute. We stayed the course, we never quit and pulled out the victory.”
The Blackhawks have already punched their ticket for the right to play in the Far East Division II title game on Nov. 5, either at Yokota or Perry.
Owen Williams caught three passes for 47 yards and a touchdown and had 20 tackles. Nate Hellams caught an 84-yard TD pass.
Marcus Childs had 15 tackles and a fumble recovery, Halen Horne made 12 tackles, recovered a fumble and had two sacks and Criss Carlos seven tackles, a fumble recovery and a sack. The Blackhawks had five interceptions and three recoveries.
“Turnovers really killed us,” said coach Shawen Smith of the Falcons, who got two touchdown passes, of 7 and 11 yards, from David Messinger to M.J. Haynes. Alex Gibson and Eric Reis combined for an end-zone tackle for a safety.
Humphreys makes the first of its two road trips to Japan next Saturday when it visits Edgren; kickoff is at 1 p.m. Seoul American hosts Daegu for its homecoming on Friday; kickoff is at 5 p.m.
