Brantley remains perfect

Published 12:00 am Saturday, October 9, 2004

Brantley scored early and often in the first half of play against Kinston last Friday night at home.

With 10 minutes remaining until halftime, it was apparent the Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0) would remain undefeated on the season and in region play as they were in control of the ballgame 33-0.

"I thought we came out and executed real well early," BHS Head Coach David Lowery said. "We had a short field to work with much of the first half and I think that's why we were able to put some points on the board real early. I thought our players made some great plays."

Every player on the Bulldogs' roster saw action in both the first and second halves of play. Lowery believes the game experience each player received will be beneficial down the road.

"It's always good when your players can get some actual Friday night work in," he said. "Overall I was pleased with Friday night's effort."

Senior running back Devaris Skanes scored first for Brantley following an on-side kick attempt by Kinston. Sophomore running back Jeffrey Daniels ran in for a score shortly after Skanes after the Bulldogs' defense forced an interception.

Brantley caused another turnover on the visiting Bulldogs' ensuing drive and was able to capitalize on it when Skanes caught Edgar Walker's pass for a touchdown.

The Bulldogs defense stepped up once again on Kinston's next possession forcing a punt. Senior Antwuan Foster fielded the punt and ran it back 61 yards for another quick score.

Brantley continued to score at will to cruise to a 46-7 Class 1A, Region 2 win.

The Bulldogs will travel tomorrow night to take on Florala. Lowery expects a hard fought region game.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
