Bracken Warriors Breaking Through before Game with Crusaders
Bracken Warriors could not stay up with the Coleman Train in their opening round loss to Tyler Street losing, 92-61.
“As young man we grew tremendously,” Head Coach Hosea Stredic said. “We learned a lot in dealing with adversity and how to deal with it when things did not go our way….but we kept pushing and they (the team) had a heart of gold.”
The Warriors could not stop the locomotive Jordaan Coleman on this day, as this young man totaled, 469 yards on his touchdown runs as the Crusaders hopped on their train for the next round of playoff games next week.
Bracken was in the game up until when they could not capitalize on a short drive after a Presley Day interceptions setting the Warriors up on the Crusaders 29 yard line.
The drive stalled on Tyler Street’s 5 yard line and then the Coleman train took off from the station and left Bracken holding the bags after his 75 yard score and 14 point lead in the first quarter.
BCS would scratch and claw back into the game later in the second quarter as they scored to end that stanza to draw within 8 points, 26-34.
The Crusaders did not take long in getting their 2 score lead back with a 45 run on the first play and BCS could not keep up as Tyler Street would score for 7 straight possessions while throwing an interception return for a touchdown.
