Banquete quarterback Ben Benavides was a perfect 10-for-10 passes with four touchdowns to go along with three rushing scores as the Bulldogs improved to 7-0 on the season and 4-0 in District 16-2A Division II with a 63-12 homecoming win over the Santa Gertrudis Academy Lions.

The victory sets up a battle of unbeatens against defending state champion and top-ranked Refugio next week.

Manuel Garcia hauled in Benavides' first touchdown pass and scored Banquete's final points of the night with a 40-yard punt return in the third quarter.

Benavides finished with six carries for 132 yards and another 219 yards through the air. He scored on runs of 13, 59 and 53 yards and his touchdown passes covered 45, 13, 64 and 33 yards.
