  1. As the Breckenridge Buckaroos and the Brock Eagles battled back and forth for the football Friday night, it was almost halfway through the second quarter before either team would score in Buckaroo Stadium. Although the Eagles had more turnovers and more than twice as many penalties in the game, they still out-scored the Buckaroos for the win.

Brock made the first touchdown, but Breckenridge answered that almost immediately with an 82-yard run by Quarterback Owen Woodward and extra point by Justin Bell. With 5:41 left in the first half, the score was tied at 7-7.

That was the only score the Buckaroos would make in the game, but, unfortunately for Breckenridge, the Eagles weren’t finished. At halftime, the score was 13-7 in favor of Brock.

In the third quarter, the Eagles made two additional touchdowns, but the Buckaroos held them scoreless in the fourth quarter. The final score was 26-7.

The Buckaroos finished the game with 215 total yards, 6 passing and 209 rushing; five penalties for 48 yards; four punts; seven first downs; and three turnovers.

Brock had 359 total yards, 81 passing and 278 rushing; 11 penalties for 70 yards; two punts; 15 first downs; and four turnovers.

“I’m disappointed because we didn’t win, but I thought our defense played their butts off,” Head Buckaroo Coach Casey Hubble said after the game. “They pretty much made us one-dimensional every time we tried to throw the ball.

“I’m just really proud of the way our defense kept fighting and kept us in the game,” he said. “There are some things that got better, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I thought our defense did really good. We had some mistakes. We’re not mistake-free by a long shot, but that team puts 50 (points) on a lot of people.”

Next week, the Buckaroos will play the Dublin High School Lions at Memorial Stadium in Dublin. The Lions beat Brady this week, 21-12. Overall, the Buckaroos have a winning record (5-2) against the Lions but have lost the past two years, including last year’s 21-22 loss in Breckenridge’s Homecoming game.

The Sept. 27 game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. and will be the Buckaroos’ last non-district game of the regular season. After taking Oct. 4 off, Breckenridge will start district play on Oct. 11 at home against Jim Ned.
