After days of rain and a sloppy field, it was easy to predict that Delphos Jefferson would run the ball extensively Friday against Bluffton. But the dominance of their offensive attack was a surprise as the Wildcats soundly defeated the Pirates 33-3, holding BHS to just 43 yards of total offense. Delphos improved to 5-1 (3-0 NWC) on the season, Bluffton fell to 3-3 (1-2).
