Football: Brandon 16, Riverview 8

BRANDON — Facing fourth and goal with less than two minutes left, the Brandon defense did what it did well all night — stopped the run.

The Eagles (1-6, 1-2) stuffed a potentially game-tying play from their own 5-yard line, holding on for their first win of the season, 16-8 over Riverview (2-6, 0-3) Thursday night.

"I'm proud of these kids," Brandon coach Dean Eychner said. "They paid their dues coming out of the gate. I saw some things out of them tonight that reflected the work they've invested."

Riverview's only score came on a fourth-quarter punt return as the Brandon defense held the Sharks to just 107 offensive yards.
