Slim Win for Brennan Over Marshall, 35-34
Well...let me start off by saying, it was nice to be shooting a game with sunlight. Traffic was good, getting to Farris, Haha!
With a total of 938 yards between both Marshall & Brennan, the ball was rather busy. It wasn't a blow out game, with a seventy something score. It was, how shall we say...more akin to basketball where each side answered back and forth. The two missed extra points by Marshall early in the first & in the third, would come back to haunt the Rams as the Bears ended the game, 35-34.
In the first quarter, Marshall's Josiah Garcia (FB) started with a 5 yard touchdown run, with a failed extra point. Brennan's Jason Love (RB) had a 10 yard run with Jonathan Swisher (K) kick, putting Brennan ahead, 7-6.
Moving onto the second quarter, Brennan's Ashton Dubose (QB) connected with Chase Campbell for a 56 yard touchdown run, with a Jonathan Swisher kick. Marshall's Dylan Cooper responded with a 5 yard run and a Schay Reichwein (K) kick, ending the half with Brennan in the lead, 14-13.
After the half, I'll say...both teams must have had an eventful pep talk, cause this quarter got busy!
In the third, Marshall came out guns blazing with a Dylan Cooper (QB) pass to Anthony Conway for a 32 yard touchdown, with Schay Reichwein making the extra point.
The Bears Avron Carter came back with a 63 yard touchdown pass from Ashton Dubose, with a Jonathan Swisher kick.
The Rams Schay Reichwein was hangin' with Mr. Cooper on a 57 yard pass from Dylan Cooper for another touchdown, and the second failed extra point.
Brennan's Spells (Jalin, WR) connected with Ashton Dubose for a 45 yard touchdown, Jonathan Swisher not far behind with the extra point.
Marshall said, nope...as Dylan Cooper once again launched a 23 yard pass to Estefan Perez for their last touchdown of the game, with a conversion from Dylan Cooper to Jack Kalisky.
In the fourth, Bears WR Jalin Spells synced with QB Ashton Dubose for a 31 yard touchdown pass, and a busy Jonathan Swisher scored another extra point.
Brennan meets Harlan next Saturday at 7:30 p.m. back at Farris. Friday, Marshall will play Jay at 2 p.m. over at Gus.
