Not many games in the history of Arbor View football feature the Aggies scoring two-thirds of their points through methods other than rushing touchdowns.
But Arbor View eschewed its run-game reputation to air it out in a 41-22 victory over Faith Lutheran Friday night. Hayden Bollinger threw for three touchdowns and completed 12 of 19 passes for 186 yards.
“We didn’t know what to expect defensively from them because all the teams they played before us were total spread, so we went in blind and took what they gave us,” Arbor View coach Dan Barnson said. “Hayden seemed to connect. He did really well.”
A running back still scored most of the points, though. Deago Stubbs caught two of Bollinger’s touchdown passes — the other aerial score went to running back Andrew Wagner — and ran in another.
Stubbs totaled more than 250 yards of total offense. Arbor View built a 28-0 halftime lead when Nick Stevenson returned a touchdown 36 yards for an interception.
All of Faith Lutheran’s points came in the fourth quarter, with Arbor View’s defense proving impenetrable earlier in the game.
