The Bermudian Springs defense created beautiful chaos.

For the York County Tech offense, it was a disaster.

Minus one big run, the Eagles held the Spartans under 100 total yards and forced five turnovers in a 34-8 victory at Bermudian Springs High School.

"(We're getting) much better," Bermudian head coach Jon DeFoe said. "(York Tech) has a tough system to prepare for in one week. It's pretty sneaky."

The Spartans couldn't get out of their own way early on, fumbling the ball away on their first three drives.

Bermudian bashed their way down shortened fields after two of those turnovers.

On the third play of the game, a fumbled snap was recovered by Bermudian linebacker Quinton King at the York Tech 31.

Seven plays later, Ashton West plowed over the goal line from 2 yards out.

Demarius Wiggins handled the snap cleanly on the next York Tech drive, but he was stopped in the backfield and Logan Luckenbaugh recovered the fumble at the Spartans' 38.

This time, it took the Eagles 11 plays and two fourth down conversions to grind into the end zone on a Chase Dull quarterback sneak.

A third York Tech fumble, this time a botched snap, did not turn into points for the Eagles as Chris Martin sacked Chase Dull on fourth down at the York Tech 26.

"The fumbles just crushed us," said York Tech head coach Brian Hanson. "When you get down 20 points, and they all came off fumbled snaps, it's hard to come back from."

The Bermudian defense kept making plays.

After Martin's sack, the Spartans lost 4 yards on three plays.

Defensive end Isaiah Fannin and King tackled Wiggins for losses on the next two plays.

Then, the Bermudian special teams answered the call.

Darren Beall fielded the ensuing punt at his own 48 between the hash marks. He weaved to the Eagles sideline and then cut across at the Tech 30 to the opposite sideline before scoring.

The Bermudian offense chewed up clock in the second half and amassed 279 yards with Stevie Wallen and Russell Wheeler starting on the line in place of the injured Cody Leer and Dorian Steele.

"It's the first team we've played all year that played the run as well as they did," Hanson said. "We have big lineman, and they get a push for the backs. Tonight, they had our linemen confused and showed us some formations we hadn't seen."

Wiggins broke free for a 49-yard touchdown midway through the fourth.
