Cardinals early surge drops Brock, 35-14

Eagles’ 4th-quarter resurgence too little, too late in home tilt

— By SALLY SEXTON

BROCK — Friday night’s game between Brock and Fort Worth Christian looked to be all but over at halftime, with the Eagles trailing, 35-0.

Despite the hole, the Eagles kept on fighting, turning the game into a better competitive battle with a scoring burst in the fourth quarter.

After holding the Cardinals scoreless in the third quarter, the Brock defense recovered a fumble in their own territory to start their first scoring drive. 

With big gains on completions from quarterback Seth Boleman to receiver Lance Ewell, Leddy French finished off the job, finding the end zone on a 4-yard carry. Klay Marr’s point-after made it 35-7 with less than seven minutes to play.

Two plays later, the Brock defense stepped up again, recovering another fumble, this time inside FWC territory. Boleman’s 13-yard pass to Ewell kick-started the drive and using the legs of French, the Eagles scored again on his 8-yard run with 57 seconds left for the final score of the game.

The Cardinals’ offense came out hot and on a mission, scoring on all four of their drives in the first quarter to take a commanding 28-0 lead. 

Caleb Stone and Jack Roberson had big runs, for 48 and 66 yards, followed by a 47-yard connection from Blaze Brownlow to Michael Burgess. Stone added another 15-yard run, and kicker Jake Kane made all four of the point-afters.

After a four-game win streak that saw Brock dominate the scoring at an average clip of 45-12, the loss puts the Eagles at 5-2 on the season.

Though initially slated for a home game with Dallas’ Prime Prep Academy on Oct. 18, that meeting has been cancelled and no replacement has been announced, which results in a bye week for the Eagles.

Brock’s next game is scheduled in Sweetwater on Saturday, Oct. 26. The Eagles will play Tornillo in a 2 p.m. game.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
