GRANITE FALLS — Ben Steffel rushed for 260 yards and 4 first-half touchdowns and the BOLD defense limited Yellow Medicine East to 124 yards of total offense as the Warriors headed home Friday with a 41-6 West Central Conference win.

Steffel scored from 47 and 25 yards out in the first quarter, and from 45 and 14 yards in the second to help BOLD (4-2, 4-2) stake a comfortable 34-0 lead at halftime. Lane Stadther threw a 35-yard scoring strike after Steffel’s fourth TD.

That was the only pass the Warriors attempted as they piled up 333 yards on 42 carries. Brad Wolff ran for 50 yards, including 7 on a fourth-quarter score to cap the scoring.

The Sting’s lone score came in the third when Austin Vikander and Chase Richter hooked up on a 48-yard TD pass.
