Page forced five turnovers and scored the first two touchdowns – sandwiched between a pair of Chase Tidmore field goals – as the Patriots sank Siegel 20-7 in Rudderville Friday in Week 2.
After a 19-yarder from Tidmore split the uprights late in the first quarter to open the scoring, senior Bubba Johnson busted loose for a 27-yard touchdown run and a 10-0 lead for the home-standing Patriots. Johnson closed with 10 carries for 45 yards to lead the rushing attack for Page.
Patriot quarterback Cade Walker completed just 7-of-17 passes, but did fire a 73-yard strike to Miles Bonn with 2:59 to play in the first half for a 17-0 advantage. He threw for 192 yards and also rushed five times for 38 yards. Bonn collected four balls for 108 yards and Blanne Burrow hauled in a 41-yard completion.
Tidmore added a 38-yard field goal midway through the third quarter.
Siegel responded with the Stars only touchdown on a 85-yard bomb from Tucker Sears as time expired in the third frame.
Hayes Barnett came away with two interceptions in the contest to lead the Patriots defense. Simon Simmonds added another INT, while Max VanLandingham (10 tackles) and Austin Harshew (9 tackles) also played big roles defensively.
