Matadors eliminate Warriors

Four first-half turnovers didn’t help Brookwood’s cause Friday night at Memorial Day.

But the Warriors struggled to move the ball against a fast, stingy Matador defense as Memorial Day hammered visiting Brookwood 55-6 in a GISA Class AA quarterfinal. The Warriors end their season 6-6.

The Warriors’ lone score pulled them within 20-6 when Cale Deese hit Payton Latmore on a 20-yard touchdown pass. And after recovering the ensuing onsides kick, the Warriors had a chance to make it a game.

However, Brookwood was unable to capitalize on that momentum and Memorial Day, which improved to 10-1, extended its lead to 42-6 at halftime.

“It was really, really hard to move the ball,” Brookwood coach Shane Boggs said. “We got some yards but there were no big plays to be had. They were extremely fast.”

While the ending was a disappointing one, it doesn’t completely overshadow a solid start to Boggs’ second tenure with the Warriors. Brookwood won its first playoff game since capturing the state championship in 2007, and also had a knack for pulling games out late.

“I think our kids had a good year,” Boggs said. “To win a playoff game and to win it against a team that has won two state championships in Piedmont Academy, and to win it on their field was big.

“And it’s like we told the team tonight, we won five games in the fourth quarter this year. We probably still left some wins out there, but we also won a couple that maybe we shouldn’t have.

“It was a really fun team to coach. I really enjoyed working with these kids.”
