Bradwell Institute had a tough road game Friday, falling 24-0 at Glynn Academy. The loss to the Terrors places the Tigers at 0-2 in Region 3-AAAAA and 0-5 overall.
The defensive pressure from the Terrors kept the Tigers from generating any passing game in the loss. Freshman quarterback Quin McMassey was 2-of-5 for only 8 passing yards.
The focus on Tiger running back Luther Echols once again kept him from any big gains. But Echols kept chipping away, averaging 3.9 yards per carry for a total of 59 yards on the ground. It also allowed for Tiger head coach Greg Hill to spread the wealth and give his younger running backs game experience.
Tiger Kevin Harris rushed for 27 yards on six carries. McMassey had 26 yards. And junior Christian Evans had 21 yards on four carries.
Harris and Evans were also responsible for the Tigers’ two receptions.
Official stats for the Terrors had not been posted by press time, but Glynn Academy produced a balanced offense and took a 14-0 lead into the half.
The Terrors added a touchdown and a field goal in the second half, sealing the shutout.
The Tiger defense was led by Joshua Ingram who made 9 solo tackles.
The schedule just gets harder for Bradwell. This Friday they host Effingham County for homecoming at 7:30 p.m.
On Oct. 16, they play at Statesboro High and on Oct. 22 the Tigers play a Thursday night game, televised on MyWSAV, hosting South Effingham. During the televised broadcast the Tigers will rename Olvey Field to Hokey Jackson Stadium.
