Surface, who also scored an interception return last week at Fernandina Beach, grabbed a pass from UC quarterback Desirrio Riles and brought it back into the end zone in the third quarter. He also made a dive pick before half-time and forced a fumble.
In August 2019, it was Christian University celebrating on the Skinner-Barco turf after defeating Bolles for the first time at the Bold City Showcase. Now the tables have turned, leaving Bolles (5-0) with maximum confidence for next week’s showdown with Class 2A No.1 Trinity Christian.
Some key points of the game:
KADE FREW LOADS ON
The Bolles senior has passed 3,000 career yards with his first transfer and hasn’t slowed down.
While Christian University largely limited Frew to modest gains at first, it didn’t matter in the end – sooner or later Frew had to break through.
This time, the breakaway moment came in the second quarter, an 18-yard run through the stomach for a 14-0 advantage by the Bulldogs.
On the night, Frew finished with 136 yards on 25 carries.
But as UC focused its energies on Frew, he often left the outside open, and first-year quarterback DJ Moore took full advantage with touchdown gallops of 33 and 22 yards.
Myles Johnson also added 82 yards for the Bulldogs.

NO TIME FOR UC OFFICE
Bolles’ defense is usually an iron barrier against even full-strength offenses.
Missing two of its most explosive threats, Christian University faced a daunting task from the start.
The Christians (3-2) had to survive without two-way junior star Orel Gray, sidelined with a knee injury suffered two weeks ago in the Christians’ loss to the County’s Class 1A power. of Madison, as well as the long distance target Ja’Won Gray.
UC produced yet another highlight to remember: Phillip Hartsfield jumped high along the sideline to knock down a jump ball for a 36 in the first quarter, a candidate of the day for Northeast Florida .
KAYDRICK ROBINSON SHINES IN DEFENSE
Whatever problems University Christian had on offense, however, one thing was clear all night.
Kaydrick Robinson is a threat rushing passes.
Robinson consistently squeezed the quarterbacks of Bolles Moore and Jakie Judge, finishing with four sacks on the night.
During a possession in the third quarter, Robinson fired Moore twice and forced another hasty incompletion. He is a strong candidate to enter week 6 as the region sack master.

DOMINANT D-LINE BOWLS
Whether it was Riles, Alan Woods or Alvonte Toliver carrying the ball, Bolles did not let go.
Bolles set the tone with a Jack Pyburn sack on the opening possession and slammed the door to UC’s rushing game, limiting the Christians to 21 rushing yards (almost all against a preemptive defense on the front snap. half-time) and three first tries.
Rush after rush, Pyburn, Hayden Schwartz, Bradley Mann, Deklan Dougherty and their colleagues rushed in.
In addition to the two Surface picks, Kemani Wilson crushed a pass as the Bulldogs frustrated Riles all night.
“I’m giving our first seven everything. They’re doing it all. We’ve got a lot of talent up front, linebackers, the D line, all the way through,” Wilson said. “With them putting pressure on the quarterback, they give us a chance in high school to get turnovers.”
