Senior quarterback Hunter Giffrow takes the snap and reads the defense on an option play before handing the ball to Ryan Roslin.

The Braham Bombers opened their new stadium with a blowout victory on Aug. 31. The Bombers hosted Chisholm for their first game at Froyen Field to kick off the 2017 season.

The boys wasted no time breaking in the end zone, putting up points on their first drive. On fourth and short, the Bombers opted to go for it.

That gamble resulted in the first touchdown at Froyen Field, with a 40-yard pass from Hunter Giffrow to Josh Zimpel.

After sending Chisholm off the field on a three and out, the Bombers followed up with another touchdown. This time on a one-play drive after Ryan Roslin kept the ball on the ground for a 66-yard run.

The Bombers were full of big plays for their home crowd. Roslin ran in three more touchdowns for eight, 16 and 75 yards. Chisholm had no answer for the junior running back.

Hunter Giffrow added two more touchdown passes, one to Zach Carlson and another huge connection with Zimpel for 59 yards.

The Bombers were stingy on defense, holding Chisholm to 1.1 yards per play. They also forced three turnovers, taking away two interceptions and one fumble.

The Bombers will now head into the season with a huge win under their belts. The home team treated their fans to a 55-0 blowout.

Next up for the Bombers will be a road game in Crosby-Ironton on Sept. 8 at 7 p.m.
