Van’Go’photo The Bison opened their 2013 season on the road with a convincing 55-21 win over (3A) Hillsboro High School. The BHS coaching staff mixed things up nicely and five different players contributed scores, with the Bison defense setting up two of the touchdowns.

Hillsboro took the early lead with a 59-yd scoring run by their speedy quarterback Deontre Richardson. On the Bison’s next possession BHS converted on 4th-and-inches when Buffalo QB Logan Jones broke free for a 45-yard TD run of his own. Freshman Jeffrey Pineda kicked his first extra point in a varsity uniform and the game was tied 7-7.

The Bison defense quickly forced another punt and when the “O” got the ball back, senior J.J. Kolb raced 78 yards to give Buffalo the lead. Pineda nailed PAT #2.

Just seconds later, senior Tyler Adams picked off the first interception of the season and then evaded pursuers for a 39- yd touchdown. Pineda again split the uprights and BHS was on top 21-7 with a minute left in the first quarter.


Tyler Adams (#8) picked off an interception and 39-yard run to give BHS a two-touchdown lead in the first quarter.

Jones completed a short pass to Adams and a 31-yarder to Bryce Pauler, then picked up first down yardage inside the 10 on the keeper. O.T.
