Football: Brandon 27, Alonso 7

BRANDON — Brandon's quick response to Alonso's 90-yard first-quarter punt return for a touchdown helped secure the first game of the season.

The Eagles (1-0) answered with two touchdowns in the second quarter. Alonso's starting quarterback, Dylan Fisher, left after the first quarter with an injury.

The Ravens started the second half strong with a 50-yard rush by Eddie Castillo but capped it unsuccessfully with a missed 27-yard field goal. Brandon capitalized with an 80-yard, seven-play drive that culminated in a 12-yard touchdown rush by Darius Lee. He had one more on the night.

"I was happy with it being the first game. Not many penalties, not a lot of turnover," Brandon coach John Lima said.

The defense also performed well, holding an anemic Ravens offense to fewer than 200 yards.
