Victory over Crusaders puts Buccaneers at 4-0

The Briarwood Academy Buccaneers defeated the Curtis Baptist Crusaders 41-6 Friday at the Briarwood field.

The Bucs are now 4-0 in the region.

Coach John Osborne said he was very proud of how well the team played and was complimentary of both the offensive line and the defensive line.

"We have been weak at times on the D-Line and O-Line, but we worked hard Friday and did very well," Osborne said.

Michael Kent opened the scoring at 7:38 with a 7-yard run. He had another 7-yard TD run at 3:58. Both kicks by Dalton Reese were good, and Briarwood led 14-0 at the first stop.

Kent added an 8-yard scoring run just five seconds into the second quarter. Bryce Sowell had a 40-yard run. Both attempts at extra points failed, and the half ended with Briarwood on top 26-0. The Buccaneers had possession near the 1-yard line as time expired.

Reese scored on a 1-yard run at 10:51 of the third quarter, and kicked the extra point. Sowell scored on a 5-yard run at 5:04. Reese then hit Sowell for the 2-point run, to close out Briarwood scoring.

Fifth Newton, a junior, moved to quarterback in the third quarter.

The Crusaders' only score came at 2:36 of the fourth quarter on a 15-yard run by Cole Swanson. The pass for extra points failed.

The Bucs will travel to Louisville this Friday night to face one of their toughest opponents of the season.

"Thomas Jefferson has a lot of team speed and it will be tough," Osborne said. "We will have to play mistake-free and bring our best game of the season."
