BOW  — Don't look now, but Sanborn is 4-4 with a realistic chance of enjoying its first wiining season.

The Indians moved into that position by relying ion its defense, along with a punishing ground game, to defeat Bow 19-3.

"Our defense is playing well and the kids are excited," said Sanborn coach John Welch. "Our kids have come together since we played Monadnock and they're hitting hard."

Mike Rich led the rushing attack with 74 yards on 16 carries and Brendan Hamilton scored twice on short dives for Sanborn, which scored in each of the first three quarters. Dustin Forbes also scored on a 4-yard run.

"Mike Rich ran the ball really well and the entire offensive line played well," said Welch.

But the real story was the defense, which held Bow to 158 yards rushing and was opportunistic with two interceptions and two fumbles. Defensive backs Rich and Jackson Forbes had the interceptions while Zach Matthews and Jon Scheidegger recovered the fumbles.

Scheidegger was a monster from his defensive end spot, applying pressure all afternoon, recording double digit tackles and deflecting three passes. Mike Furtado was also a force on the front wall.
