A steady stream of Salem turnovers and explosive scoring by Brownstown Central’s football team handed the home-standing Braves a breezy 55-7 victory Friday night.
Brownstown recovered four Lions fumbles in enemy territory and blocked a punt on the Salem 3-yard line. The Braves turned all five opportunities into touchdowns, generating a 20-point scoring burst in a three-minute span in the first quarter and a 28-point eruption in a five-minute stretch of the third quarter.
While Friday’s win boosted Brownstown’s hopes of a Mid-Southern Conference title and improved the team’s overall record to 4-0, all of the postgame attention was focused on Reed May, who claimed his 200th victory as Brownstown’s head coach.
May’s record in 21 years as a head coach — all at Brownstown Central — improved to 200-41.
