Bruins cap off season with commanding 27 point victory

In a chilling battle played in 40 degree weather, LB Football finished off the regular season with a fitting victory of 47-20 against the Robert E. Lee Lancers.

The game started quickly as on their opening drive, the Bruins drove down the field and scored a touchdown in a minute and a half. After a quick score, there was a lull in the game as neither team scored for the majority of the quarter. Then, after an interception by both sides, the Bruin offense once again traveled down the field and scored a second touchdown, leaving the score after the first quarter 14-0 Bruins.

The second quarter saw most of the games action as the Bruins went on a scoring rampage. On the first play of the quarter, junior quarterback Kyle Edwards ran the ball all the way down the 7-yard line. The very next play, senior running back Dejoun Lee ran the ball in for the touchdown, making the game score 20-0 37 seconds into the second quarter. From then on out, the Bruins rolled, seeing a punt return for a touchdown by junior Peyton Scott and two passing touchdowns to junior Trey Stephens and senior Evan Eschenberg. After the dust cleared and the first half ended, the scoreboard read: Bruins 40, Lancers: 0.

The second half started off where the Bruins had left off with another rushing touchdown by Lee. However, that would be the last time the Bruins would score in the game. In fact, the only scoring to take place after that would be by the Lancers, who scored three unanswered touchdowns.

Still, despite the late game push, the Lancers effort came up short and the Bruins finished their season with a solid win, doubling their opponents score.

With this win, the Bruins finished the regular season with eight wins and two losses and took first in the Patriot District. Now, they look to turn their winning streak into momentum for the playoffs.
