With three games down and two remaining in the season, the Aucilla Christian Academy junior varsity football team chalked up their third victory, downing Brookwood for a 14-0 win and to stand 3-0 on the season.
Coach Derrick Burrus advised that pre-game formalities were set aside due to impending weather.
ACA kicked to Brookwood and the Warriors defense went to work.
Timmy Burrus led with seven tackles and forced one fumble.
Nick Roberts had six tackles and one fumble recovery.
As Brookwood moved the ball up the field into the red zone, Ricky Finlayson picked off an interception.
Austin Bishop had three tackles including a quarterback sack.
Bryce Sanderson and Daulton Browning each made three tackles.
All of Aucilla’s points resulted from broken plays.
Timmy Burrus had 136 yards total offense including rushing 55 yards for a touchdown on a broken play.
On another broken play, after breaking several tackles in the backfield, he passed to Eric Hutsell for a 41-yard touchdown.
Extra point kicker, Austin Bishop turned a high snap into a run for two points.
“We did a great job on both sides of the ball tonight. Unfortunately, lightning ended the game just prior to half time,” said Coach Burrus. “I am especially proud of our linemen. They don’t get stats, but they work hard every play giving our backs room to do their work.”
The young Warriors face off against North Florida Christian middle school, 6 p.m., September 22, at home. Come on out and cheer Aucilla on to their fourth season victory.
