Brady 9th drops close one to Burnet, 17-12

A pair of miscues spelled doom for the Brady freshman football team as they lost their first district game here Thursday evening to Burnet, 17-12. The frosh are now 3-3 overall and 1-1 in district play. “We played hard, but those two costly fumbles inside the Burnet 5-yard line came back to haunt us,” Brady coach Bill Brown said. “These young men are learning what it takes to be successful. They have a passion for the game and a passion for winning,” he said. Offensive coach Tim Kilgore said that the Dogs moved the ball on the ground “behind some strong blocking by Will Robinett and Gilbert Rodriquez.” “Mackey Crawford, Channing Booker and Rodriquez kept the passing game going as time ran out,” he added. Brady scored first when QB Paden Behrens ran one yard for the TD. The PAT failed. Burnet came back in the second quarter to score a pair of TDs on runs of 6 and 19 yards. Both extra points were good, and the visitors led at intermission, 14-6. Following a 38-yard field goal by Burnet in the fourth period, Booker returned the ensuing kickoff 105 yards for Brady’s last TD. The PAT failed. “Booker had an interception and returned it 45 yards to stop a Burnet drive, and Chris Castleman recovered a Burnet fumble to halt another march,” Todd Bandy said. The freshman team will be back in action Thursday at Liberty Hill. Score by quarters: Burnet 0 14 0 3’17 Brady 6 0 0 6’12
