Ben Davis bears down on Lawrence Central

The Ben Davis Giants may still be waiting for Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference foe Lawrence Central to finally show up. The Bears arrived at Ben Davis Friday night but the only team that actually came to play was the Giants as they delivered a 42-12 thumping of Lawrence Central.

“I thought our kids were very focused all week for having a short week,” Ben Davis coach Mike Kirschner said. “We had some younger kids step up and play pretty well and we got after it and stayed focused. We beat a pretty good football team tonight.”

Ben Davis’ scoring started early and happened often.

The Giants led 7-0 in the first quarter after a 12-play, 71-yard drive that ended with a Kyle Castner rushing touchdown from the Lawrence Central 2-yard line. After a Bears’ three-and-out on the ensuing possession, the Giants went down the field and finished their drive with a 6-yard Castner TD pass to Sean Boswell for a 14-0 lead.

Castner was in his element completing 10 of 14 passes for 50 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also added 48 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. While Castner’s stats lacked quantity, there wasn’t any question about their quality.

“Coach always says it’s not about the stats,” Castner said. “If someone were to look at the stat book after this game it’s nothing special, but when you dink them here and you dink them there and it opens up the other offensive opportunities. I thought we did a great job all night.”

The Giants closed out the first half on Dorian Tate’s 24-yard rushing touchdown to lead, 20-0. Tate finished with 130 yards and two touchdowns, complimenting Chris Evans’ 93 yards rushing and Jamie Aiken’s 70 yards on the ground as the Giants rushing attack continued to gain steam.

“We didn’t run well early in the season but now we think of ourselves as a three running back team,” Kirschner said. “Aiken a senior, Tate a junior and Evans a sophomore; three kids in three different grades and they all carry a little different. Tate’s more of a power runner, Jamie is a little more of a slasher and Chris is one of those break away runners and he’s just a sophomore who is going to be pretty special when it’s all said and done.”

The Giants (4-2) will face Center Grove next Friday and don’t plan on missing a beat.

“We have to operate like we’re supposed to,” Castner said. “Coaches are always talking about the process and not the outcome. If we focus on the process then the outcome will be the same as today’s.”
