Dunn, Indians run past improving squad from Martin
With 11 carries, Saugatuck sophomore Blake Dunn didn’t have a lot of rushing attempts in the Indian’s SAC North game with Martin on Friday, Oct. 3.
But he sure made the most of the opportunities he had.
Dunn ran for 357 yards and six touchdowns in the Indians’ 58-32 home win over the Clippers.
All of Dunn’s scoring runs covered 20 yards or more.
“He’s a good player,” first-year Martin coach Travis Farris said of Dunn. “He’s a good back.”
Dunn’s scoring runs went 35, 20, 52, 49, 64 and 68 yards, with the first three coming in the first quarter as Saugatuck built a 20-8 lead. By halftime, the Indians were up 42-8.
Alex Segovia (36-yard run in the second quarter) and Cole Hartman (nine-yard run in the second quarter) also scored touchdowns for the 4-2 overall (2-0 SAC North) Indians.
Saugatuck coach Bill Dunn was delighted by the way his offense played.
“The (offensive) line opened some big holes,” he said. “I couldn’t have asked for anything more from our offense.”
With the running game working so well, the Indians didn’t take to the air very often.
“We only threw the ball twice and completed one of them,” Bill Dunn said.
The play of Blake Dunn received high marks from his opponents.
“He’s fast,” pointed out Martin senior running back Nate Morris, who suited up last fall for Hopkins.
Even though the Clippers haven’t enjoyed the recent winning success that Hopkins has had, Morris couldn’t be happier.
“I loved everything about Martin,” Morris said. “My teammates, coaches and all the students are great to be around.”
Morris’ first touchdown of the season came on a third quarter 5-yard run.
