DELBARTON — It was Drew Hatfield’s night on Thursday night at the Burch football field in Delbarton.

Hatfield, the Burch Middle School quarterback, accounted for all seven of the Bulldogs’ touchdowns as Burch rolled over the Lenore Rangers, 50-8, in a battle of Mingo County rivals.

Hatfield scored six touchdowns and also fired a 70-yard bomb to Gavin Farley for another score as the Bulldogs improved to 4-1 on the season.

Hatfield scored three TDs on runs of 76, 65 and 41 yards and took it to the house three more times on special teams with scores of 75, 50 and 55 yards on either punt or kickoff returns.

It was also an even better night for Hatfield. With his team up 30-0 over the Rangers at halftime, he was also crowned as the homecoming king.

Burch has now won four straight games. The Bulldogs have also downed Sandy River (34-20), Williamson (38-0) and Kermit (44-0) during the streak.

Lenore dropped to 2-2 on the season with the loss.

The Rangers scored their only touchdown of the night with 4:12 to go in the third quarter with a 1-yard plunge by Kyle Ellis. Parker Brewer ran in on the two-point conversion to make it 30-8.

Burch then added three more scores to close out the game.
