Central Bucks West football started its 2012 football campaign by doing something it hasn’t done in 10 seasons.
The Bucks' defense shut out their opponent.
And they did it in style.
The Bucks beat Upper Dublin, 31-0, behind a dominant defense that garnered two interceptions and five sacks. Brian Steele added seven tackles, while Sam Piccone had five.
Piccone, who wears jersey number 18, caught his first interception of the year on his 18th birthday.
Offensively, seven different receivers caught a pass for the Bucks, with quarterback Cody Riemenschneider throwing for 158 yards and three touchdowns. Mark Ciaudelli was on the receiving end of two of those touchdown passes from Riemenschneider, one of which went for nine yards while the other went for 29. On the ground it was Kevin Dugan who made an impact, as he had a 35 yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
Playing at home, CB West scored one touchdown in the first quarter, but it was Dugan’s long run that burst the game wide open. The Bucks scored three of four first half touchdowns in the second quarter, while Nick Danilo put a 35 yard field goal through the uprights in the third quarter.
