Football: Brandon 51, Middleton 6

BRANDON — Brandon scored its most points since 2007 in a rout of Middleton. The game, originally scheduled at Middleton, was moved because of poor field conditions.

Key drive: After Tigers (0-5) linebacker Deangelo Logan intercepted Isaiah Alexander and returned it 54 yards for a touchdown to start the second quarter, the Eagles (4-2) responded. Running back Jordan Chavers and Alexander led a seven-play, 65-yard TD drive, ending on a 16-yard pass from Alexander to fullback Jamal Aekins.

Play of the game: Before Middleton's band got to the bleachers, Brandon junior wide receiver Ryan Sass took the opening kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown.

Stars of the game: Alexander had two passing touchdowns and a 4-yard TD run. …Brandon sophomore running back Sheldon Green scored two rushing touchdowns (6 and 4 yards). … Eagles defensive end John Middel had a sack and blocked a punt.

Stat of the game: Middleton was held without a first down from its second drive until the opening possession of the third quarter — more than 20 minutes.
