Rematch for Bremond or revenge for Lovelady
Whether this game classifies as a rematch between Bremond Tigers and the Lovelady Lions or a chance for revenge, all depends on which team’s point of view you look at it from. Either way expect the Big Red to be ready.
Their will be no love lost between these two teams, as they are rivals from the same District. Bremond defeated Lovelady, 56-18 in Bremond, on Homecoming for the Tigers. The Tigers have their goals set high this season and right now Lovelady stands in the way. In the earlier match up the Tigers scored just 12 seconds into the game and never let up on the Lions. The Big Red defense has stood tall in every challenge thus far this season and has played especially well in the playoffs. No team has scored more than 14 points all season on the Tigers and their offense is putting up points at an impressive rate. Quarterback Cade Grych continues his improvement each week in the passing game and the rushing attack, even without James Jones, has been first rate. The Tiger offense is averaging over 40 points a game in the playoff round. On paper this looks to be a mismatch, but remember Lovelady started that earlier game by returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown, only to have it called back. Then, they fumbled on their first play and Bremond’s Harrison Hull would scoop and score. From that point on it was all a downhill race for Bremond.
Bremond quarterback Cade Grych accounted for 4 scores against Detroit in the 1st half and Josh Anderson would add 2 rushing touchdowns and the Tigers would rest their starters after bolting to a 48-6 halftime lead. Grych would get the Tigers on the board with an 18 yard touchdown and after Anderson scored on runs of 61 and 47 yards to give the Tigers a 21-0 advantage, he would throw touchdown passes of 41 yards to Harrison Hull, 20 yards to Evan Sargent and 57 yards to RayAndre Browning to stretch the Tigers lead to 48-0. Detroit’s offense could get nothing going against the Big Red defense on the night and could only post 6 points. The Big Red defense led by Harrison Hull, Draven Dennison, Jarvis Jones, and Colby Wilganowski, bent but never broke and as a result the Tigers will move on to the Regional Quarter-Finals against District foe Lovelady.
If Chilton defeats Tenaha this weekend then the Tigers could face another district team in the Regional Semi-Finals next week.
