Warriors Scores Quick in Win over Wildcats, 51-0
Bracken Christian was in and out of New Braunfels Wildcats so fast that Coach Lloyd Fields made sure that he could get through another week without injuries in the Warriors, 51-0 mercy game against the Cats.
“No starters got injured,” Coach Fields said short and sweet. “This win helped get us to the five wins in the season threshold.”
Freshman receiver Christian De Leon had three touchdowns to go with his four receptions setting a Warrior record for number of TD’s by taking the ball in the air.
The ReSporter could not go back to those first two years of Bracken games, but since that time there has not been a receiver to break what was two TD receptions by several players.
Noah Boriack also had two interception returns for scores which is also a Warrior record and those scores also helped Bracken Christian to get out of town even quicker to avoid a chance for injuries.
Fourteen plays from scrimmage and six touchdowns will give a team a percentage you can have a good night’s rest with.
There were a few touchdowns called back by penalty which would have made that an even higher percentage.
New Braunfels Christian is another team without enough players to give this Cat team the depth needed to spell some players. New Braunfels was a predominantly freshman team lacking in any depth.
That is becoming a similar situation for Bracken and the reason for needing to protect their players.
Making it to the end of the season in tact will indicate how Bracken will be able to play during the playoff season.
The Warriors scored on their very first run when Boriack took the pitch from quarterback Jeff Camp for 50 yards and a quick, 7-0 lead.
Camp was playing quarterback for the first time this season replacing an injured Brady Beene.
Boriack helped Warriors get to 45 points as fast as ‘Usain Bolt’ can use ‘Lightning’, when he intercepted the Wildcats pass on their third play from scrimmage, going untouched for another touchdown before the first minute had gone off the clock.
New Braunfels Christian had their best drive of the night on their next drive when they reached the Warriors’ four yard line before a fumble and squashing any hope of scoring in this contest.
NBC had three first downs in this game and they were all spent on that one drive.
Bracken would take their longest drive of four plays to score when another freshman, Thomas Johnson scored on a 10 yard pass from Boriack.
After an NBC punt, Bracken Christian would squeeze, two more scores, before the end of that first quarter with another Boriack interception return and a pass to De Leon for one of his three touchdown catches.
Joshua Chu (a first year player that is not a freshman) would highlight the next drive with a 24 yard run that helped set up another pass to De Leon for a score and a commanding, 44-0 score.
Coy Zunker who had 12 tackles which is a good percentage based on NBC’s 19 total plays from scrimmage, scored the final touchdown from running 10 yards out and letting Chu finish the wrapping paper on this victory.
Bracken will need to have all hands on deck this coming Friday when Defending TAPPS Division II Champion, San Antonio Castle Hills comes calling to Bracken field.
“Reality will hit us when the State Champions comes next week,” Coach Fields said. “We will need to learn how to finish a game.”
This game will define where Bracken will stand in district as they get ready for that second season.
Important game considering how many players they hope to have when that time of year approaches!!
