The Zeeland West Dux started the season with a very impressive road win against East Grand Rapids last week. This week, they added another impressive win to their belt when they took down Grand Rapids Christian in their Week 2 contest with another phenomenal display of offense.
Things started for the Dux when Evan Eding was able to punch in the end zone from two yards out midway through the first quarter. The missed PAT had Zeeland West up 6-0. Three minutes later, Eason Hardouin took to the air and connected with Jordan Dockery for a 43 yard touchdown to even the score at six.
The second quarter saw a trio of touchdowns that put Zeeland West ahead by eight. Chase Peddie started the scoring with a one yard run. He would score again two minutes later from five yards out to push the lead to 20-6. With 0:27 left in the first half, Thad Gamble‘s three yard run brought the Eagles within eight at 20-12 heading into the locker room.
Zeeland West struck first in the third quarter on a three yard run by Evan Eding. The two point try put the Dux up 28-12. Thad Gamble would break off a 30 yard run later in the quarter to pull GR Christian within eight points. It was a productive night for Gamble in the loss, as he would score his third touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 15 yard run.
The Dux offense converted on three scoring drives in the fourth quarter to extend the lead beyond reach. Carson Gulker got things rolling with a 9 yard touchdown run. Chase Peddie would cap off his 217 rushing yard, four touchdown performance with a pair of touchdowns in the final quarter. These runs from two and thirty yards out pushed this score to its final of 48-27.
This was the thirteenth straight game that the Dux have scored at least 20 points, a streak that dates back to the 2017 regular season finale. They will begin OK Green play next week when they take on the Holland Dutch. For Grand Rapids Christian, they are now 0-2 but they have played two of the best teams in the area.
