Bernardez completed 12-of-16 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the contest.
“As a quarterback, you’ve got to be willing to take it on your shoulders, especially in our offense,” Dulaney coach Reid said. “He has faith in his teammates as well.”
Dulaney’s defense also enjoyed first-half sacks from McBride, Cockerham and Tommy Petinelli.
For the third time in the game, the Vikings penetrated inside the Lion 25-yard line, as they moved the ball 47 yards on the first drive of the second half.
A 26-yard completion from Jankiewicz to Mattocks was the biggest gain on the drive that stalled after a fourth-down incompletion at the Lion 23.
Lansdowne’s offense never threatened again and the Lions tacked on a touchdown run by Bernardez (28 yards), TD reception by Kia Johnson (30 yards) and touchdown plunge by Nick Koger (1 yard) on the last play of the game.
Using a no-huddle, shotgun offense, Dulaney rushed for 203 yards and passed for 171 more behind a line that included center Wall, guards Chris Buongasnore and Petinelli and tackles Quinn Conory and Blaik Thompson.
Coach Reid is excited to see the progress and noticed it in the previous week’s 40-0 loss to Kenwood.
“Last week was a big improvement, even though it was a shutout, but we played better as a team,” he said. “We missed less tackles. We missed less blocks and that was awesome to see, so we just kept the momentum going and it carried over today.”
Lansdowne’s Junker is hoping to build some momentum.
“We are going to work to get better and hopefully next week we are going to be more competitive,” he said.
