Brock senior runs amok in Eagles’ romp past Windthorst

Staff Report

Brock senior running back/quarterback Slaten Gough continues to leave indelible entries in the early chapters of Eagles’ gridiron record books. 

Rushing for five touchdowns and throwing a scoring toss for another, Gough led the Brock offense in a 48-14 dissection of the Windthorst defense at Trojan Stadium on Friday.

In the first minute of play, Gough broke free for a 65-yard TD run, following up with a 70-yard jaunt barely two minutes later. He added scoring runs of 3, 5 and 20 yards, and connected with wideout Lance Ewell early in the fourth quarter for a 50-yard scoring toss.

The Eagles’ defense shut down Windthorst’s offense in the second half, as Brock improved its season record to 5-1 on the year in its free-lance slate.

After five consecutive contests on the road, the Eagles will return home on Friday, meeting Fort Worth Christian, who brings a season record of 3-2. The contest will be held at Brock’s Junior High Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
