Thursday night, the Brantley High School Bulldogs went head to head with the Red Level Tigers, and brought home a victory of 49-6.
“I thought we came out and played hard early. The first drive set the tone, we got ahead and we were able to get a lot of guys in the game, which was exciting,” said BHS Head Coach Ashley Kilcrease.
“I thought we threw the ball well and we caught it well. Tommy Spivey and Adrian Person, Jr. had big nights. I thought our offensive line blocked well; I thought we played okay on defense. We probably gave up too many yards on the ground, but we kept them out of the end zone with the first group.”
In the first quarter, the Bulldogs made it on the scoreboard with an 11-yard pass touchdown from senior quarterback Jacob Free to junior wide receiver Adrian Person, Jr.; an extra point was earned with a kick by senior defensive end Tucker Owens, bringing the score up to 7-0.
Following close behind was a 5-yard touchdown pass from Free to junior wide receiver D’Andre Sinclair; an extra point was earned with a kick by Owens, which brought the Bulldogs ahead 14-0.
Closing out the first quarter was a 3-yard touchdown run by junior running back Mack Wise and an extra point earned with a kick by Owens.
Heading into the second quarter, the Bulldogs led 21-0.
Senior wide receiver Jermany Salter brought in the first touchdown in the beginning of the quarter. Salter completed a 25-yard touchdown pass from Free, and an extra point was earned with a kick by Owens.
An 11-yard touchdown pass from Free to Sinclair put the Bulldogs ahead 34-0, and an extra point was earned with a kick by Owens.
Senior wide receiver Tommy Spivey brought in the only touchdown for the third quarter with a 15-yard pass from Free; Owens brought home another extra point with a kick, which made the score 42-0.
Wrapping up the fourth quarter, a 19-yard touchdown run was scored by sophomore running back Tyler Booker, with an extra point earned with a kick by Owens. An 18-yard run and two-point conversion was attempted, but failed, which ended the game at 49-6 in favor of the Bulldogs.
This week, the Bulldogs will travel to Florala to face the Wildcats.
“Florala is down, and they’re not as good as they have been. We’re just really going to work on focusing on us and trying to get better,” Kilcrease said.
“Hopefully, that will take care of itself.”
