Football: Brandon 34, Newsome 0

BRANDON — Brandon (2-3) ran for 371 yards in a 34-0 upset of Newsome on Thursday.

In a 7A-8 showdown, the Eagles shut out a Newsome (3-3) squad that had been averaging just over 30 points a game. Brandon, which had been giving up almost 37 a game, forced three turnovers and stopped three attempts by Newsome to convert on fourth down.

"That's a hell of a football team right there," Brandon coach John Lima said of the Wolves. "They just had a bad night, but lucky for us we came ready to play."

Momentum swung Brandon's way on the first drive, as Newsome failed to convert on fourth and 1 from its 39. It took only a few plays for Tyrell Garner to run it in from the 7. Cyrus Dooley and Garner scored on each of Brandon's next two possessions for a 20-0 lead heading into the half.

Dooley scored twice more in the second half, including a punishing 31-yarder in the fourth quarter to highlight his 147-yard night.
