After a scoreless first quarter, Bungum fired scoring strikes covering 27 yards to Jason Kampsen and 14 yards to Weston Brinkman in the second quarter to put Paynesville (3-1) ahead 14-6.

Bungum then hooked up with Kampsen again in the third for a 15-yard TD before running 4 yards for a fourth-quarter score.

It was the Bulldogs' third straight win.

Both of Kampsen's catches went for scores while Bungum also completed 20-yard passes to Caleb Burris and Nathan Meyer to finish 10-for-19 with 147 yards. Bungum nearly averaged 10 yards a carry as he ran 25 times (9.2 average).
