Football: Brandon 28, East Bay 14

BRANDON — Brandon tailback Tyrell Garner rushed for a season-high 149 yards as the Eagles eclipsed their 2009 win total with a victory against East Bay (0-3).

"We're hungrier this year," Garner said. "I think we made a statement tonight."

Garner salted away the win with a 39-yard run with 3:50 to play. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound senior took the pitch and headed up the middle before bouncing out wide and down the sideline for the score.

Tied at 14 at halftime, the Eagles (4-0) took the lead for good with a seven-play, 78-yard drive on their first possession of the third. Garner had a 54-yard run and QB Allen Knipple hit Reggie Roach from 15 yards out for the TD.

East Bay's Junior Nemorin ran for a team-high 72 yards and Keionne Baines added 51 yards rushing and a pair of scores.
