For the second week in a row, turnovers hurt the Brock Eagles, who fell 21-0 to the Argyle Liberty Christian Warriors Friday on the road.
However, unlike week two against Iowa Park when Brock overcame several fumbles to win 24-7, the team’s week three contest proved less fortunate.
Brock (2-1) hosts the Breckenridge Buckaroos at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The game against Liberty Christian was called with 7:11 in the third quarter due to approaching storms.
Brock Head Football Coach Chad Worrell said the Eagles must clean up their execution moving forward.
“We’re just not converting the points right now,” Worrell said.
“We’ve gotta get that fixed. We’ve had six touchdowns called back in the first three games, and six turnovers in the last two. We didn’t even have a turnover in the first game. That’s keeping us from putting points on the board. Just a lack of preparation on our part.”
One bright spot for the Eagles was in the backfield, as running back Toby Morrison racked up 101 yards on 17 carries.
Worrell credited his team’s big men up front for helping establish the effective running game
“Our offensive line was doing a good job of opening holes,” Worrell said.
Brock fumbled four times, losing three.
Despite this, the Eagles (19:17) led the Warriors (16:43) in time of possession.
Defensively, defensive end Jase Lopez led Brock with four tackles.
Fellow defensive end Jesse Hallmark and defensive tackle Parker Bounds combined for Brock’s lone sack.
The Eagles will look to get back on track against Breckenridge, one of only three teams to defeat Brock last season.
