For the first time this season the Brownstown Central football team got to play a regular-season game at Blevins Memorial Stadium in front of its home crowd.
After coming off a big loss last week, the Braves on Friday fed off of their home crowd and cruised to a 47-7 win against Eastern (Pekin) and evened their Mid-Southern Conference record to 1-1.
Braves coach Reed May was happy to see his team get back on track.
“It was better than last week,” May said. “Again, the quality of opponent was different last week from this week. We had a lot of problems last week, and a lot of it was because Charlestown was so good. Also, we did some things not good.
“(The) main thing is, we did things tonight we should have. We came out and did that, and hopefully, improved on some things. We made a lot of changes from last week to this week, and hopefully, we got better and we just need to get better every week.”
On the Braves’ first possession of the night, Mitchell Scarlett scored on a 3-yard run at 10:19, and Nick Stahl connected on the extra point for a 7-0 lead.
