BUFORD — Buford’s football team rebounding from a season-opening loss with a 39-6 rout of Carver-Atlanta on Friday.

The Wolves’ defense dominated by holding Carver to 33 yards (34 rushing and minus-1 passing) and two first two downs.

Victor Venn rushed eight times for 89 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Buford offense, which rushed for 228 yards and threw for 19.

Gabe Ervin’s 5-yard TD run gave Buford a 7-0 lead after the first quarter, and the advantage grew to 25-0 by halftime. Venn and Christian Butler had 1-yard TD runs in the second quarter, Malik Spencer ran for a two-point conversion and Alex Mata made a 40-yard field goal as time expired in the half.

A pick-six by Carver in the third quarter trimmed the lead to 25-6 before Venn’s 43-yard TD run opened the lead back up. The Wolves’ last TD came in the third when Mason McCranie returned a fumble three yards for a third-quarter score.
