Bracken Christian has totaled 92 wins since play started in 2006 and The Winston is responsible for 8 of those victories as the Warriors have more wins with the Eagles than any other school.
BCS has played two schools more than Winston as Austin Hill Country (7-4) and Kerrville OLH (7-2) hold those games and records with Bracken.
Looking at the games played this year you will find just one game that each school has gone to battle with and another tidbit to take in would be The Winston going into this game with their best record ever in the series.
SA Lutheran was the common opponent and Lutheran was handled by both schools via the Mercy rule.
Something more to take to note is Lutheran being shut out by Winston and then scoring 25 points on the Warriors.
Bottom line is a Winston school that will not be a pushover with last year and this campaign having a formidable opponent.
Junior Dylan Luna #30 will be a player for Bracken to keep their eye on as this young man has scored the most points with the most yardage. Luna gets the ball after the snap and will run or pass with his running being the most lethal.
Containment will be imperative for Bracken’s defense as stopping Luna would be the way of stopping the Eagles.
Alejandro Vasquez (#7) will be another outlet for the Eagles with the second most rushing yardage for this season.
The go to guy for receptions will be #10 Anthony Beres and his hands will help on defense as he plays cornerback for the Eagles.
Bracken will counter with a tight offense that has had success in wearing down teams as the contest gets long in the tooth.
Presley Day and Lucas McCrum combine for bruising and speed runs with QB Brady Beene continuing to have one of his best passing seasons.
Defensively, Reese Smith has 2 interceptions in his last two games and the emergence of Paul Nakalanga playing against spread offenses has this player with a knack of hassling his opponent.
Watching that part of the game develop on this night will be key in seeing if Winston’s Luna will be minimized. That would help the Warriors in reaching their 7-0 record while preparing for district play.
Winston will run plays for their point afters attempts and Bracken will use Nakalanga’s two point afters and that could help supply the separation needed to seal the deal.
