Panthers squeeze past Warriors

After a host of Brookwood mistakes in every phase of the game Friday night, host Tiftarea Academy kicked a field goal with a minute left to escape with a 28-27 win at the Panther Pit in Chula.

“It was a tremendous missed opportunity,” Brookwood coach Shane Boggs said after his Warriors fell to 1-3. “Not to take anything away from them because they made one more play than we did and that’s how it goes.

“Over the course of maybe 160 plays, if we make one more play we win the game.”

The Warriors had that chance numerous times. Taking the opening kickoff, Brookwood drove straight down the field and Taylor Patterson capped the drive with the first of his three scores, scoring from 20 yards out. However, Brookwood missed the extra point — just the first in a host of special team breakdowns during the first half — and the Warriors led 6-0.
