LIBERTY — Liberty junior Caden Dennis took the ball 93-yards on the first play of the game and the Blue Jays football team never slowed down in a 52-28 rout of district foe Rock Bridge.

The Bruins responded with two Nathan Dent rushing touchdowns late in the first half.

The Blue Jays traded rushing scores with Rock Bridge as Dent scored from 58 yards and Bryce Jackson from three yards as Liberty led 42-28 heading into the final period.
Liberty senior kicker Alek Rottjakob looked to have finished off the scoring for the Blue Jays with a 41-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, but sophomore running back Anthony Wenson break free for 46-yard rushing touchdown with under a minute to go.
