Bronson Eagles shut out Seahawks

Friday night’s Seahawk home game against the Bronson Eagles didn’t start out pretty and it didn’t end on a good note, either.

The Eagles amassed a 26-0 lead after the first quarter, tacked on 22 more for a 48-0 bulge at halftime, and after a scoreless third stanza, scored a touchdown late in the game, complete with some celebration antics and a two-point conversion, to end with a 56-0 blanking of the Franklin County Seahawks.

To avoid any fisticuff repercussions, Seahawk Coach Dirk Strunk  and Bronson Coach Russell Holley met at midfield, and the two teams opted not to line up for post-game handshakes and left the field after time ran out.

It had been a drubbing by  the now 4-3 Eagles, whose large roster of experienced veteran players overwhelmed the much smaller Seahawk lineup of young players.

Strunk opted to vary his backfield, starting with senior quarterback Evan Stanley, who completed 5 of 9 passes for 40 yards and one interception. 

Freshman Garyson Millender tried his hand taking snaps, and completed 4 of 13 aerials, for 64 yards. Sophomore Alex Sterling also got in the game.

The  rare offensive successes came with  sophomore Brayden McCall catching four passes for 67 yards, and senior Larry Winchester three for 30 yards, and junior Wyatt Abercrombie one for seven yards.

On the ground the Seahawks found it hard to gain turf,  with only Winchester and Stanley in positive and both in single digits.

Sophomore Reece Juno and Winchester had kickoff returns of 45 and 41 yards, respectively.

Defensively, .junior Kevin Sullivan had five assist with tackles, while junior Parker Mock had one solo and five assists. Millender had one solo and three assist, and Abercrombie four assists.

Sophomore Gideon Dively punted four times for 86 yards, an average of better than 21 yards each time.

The winless Seahawks host the 5-2 Sneads Pirates Friday night, with game time at 7 p.m.
