Richwood, and in particular quarterback Zach Bennett, accumulated a fair amount of yardage, but almost all of it seemed to come between the 30s as the Bison defense made play after play when it mattered most.
The Lumberjacks (2-4) rushed for 340 yards on a whopping 66 attempts, but Bennett and backup Logan Cox combined for just 2 yards on 1 of 14 passing and Richwood just couldn't sustain drives long enough to make dents in the scoreboard.
"I thought we played hard the whole game, they just have more weapons than we can match up with," Richwood coach Jason Rogers said. "[Their defense is] just so fast. They've got a bunch of team speed - they're hard to block. You look at them and they're not very big, but they get after it and they just keep coming and coming."
Jordan, who broke school records in passing yards and touchdowns last week, finished the game with 269 yards on 6 of 9 passing with no interceptions. For those keeping track, that's a ridiculous 44.8 yards per completion.
Buffalo improved to 4-1 and the focus remains not just on making the playoffs but securing a first-round home game. With home dates against No. 10 Wirt County and Fayetteville as well as a road trip to No. 4 Wahama to finish the year, Sawyer knows the road will be tough.
"Everybody's goal is to get into the playoffs and of course you'd like to have a home playoff game," Sawyer said. "Last year we had to go to the Eastern Panhandle and got a tough draw. The last three years we made the first round and came home and we don't want to do that this year. Our goal is to go further, but you've got to get there first. If we get a home game it should be easier to do that this year."
Bennett led all rushers with 167 yards on 26 carries. Good led the Bison with 92 yards on 10 carries and 107 yards on three receptions.
