Brownstown Central football coach Reed May says there are normally going to be five or six big plays that will determine the outcome of a football game.
The Braves made most of them, on both offense and defense, to defeat Seymour 30-12 on Senior Night on Friday at Blevins Memorial Stadium.
“Our defense is playing very well right now,” May said. “I think our defensive coaches, coach (Jerry) Brown and coach (Shane) Fallis, do a great job with our defense. They had a good game plan. They had some good calls tonight. On the last touchdown, we blitzed them, and Noah Cotten came in and hit the quarterback in the back and (Jacob) Jackson made the recovery.
“Our defense has been flying around, and tonight they did a great job with some hits.”
The teams traded touchdowns the first five minutes of the fourth quarter. Seymour scored on a 35-yard pass from Austin Sutton to Hunter Klakamp to trail 16-12 with 8:32 left in the game.
The Braves answered that score quickly when Jay Wehmiller ran around the right end and raced 82 yards with 7:31 remaining, and Nick Stahl’s kick made it a 23-12 score.
