Logan Chambers’ 58-yard touchdown pass to Randy Thomas snapped an 8-8 tie and lifted the Bryant Blue Hornets of Bethel Middle School to a 16-8 win over the Bryant White Hornets of Bethel Middle School in a seventh grade game at Bryant Stadium Monday night.
Thomas scored both Bryant Blue touchdowns with the difference-maker coming with 3:23 left to play. Thomas added a run for a two-point conversion to set the final score. Tyler O’Neal had run in the two-pointer on the initial touchdown.
Bryant White’s touchdown came on a scoop and score by Jesse Windemaker after a big hit on the Bryant Blue running back. Travis Bradberry provided another highlight for Bryant White with a long run from scrimmage.
“Bethel beat us, it’s that simple,” said Bryant White coach Brad Smothermon. “We played better in the second half than the first and showed improvement. We just need to fix things and get ready for Saturday’s jamboree.”
Both teams will participate in the jamboree on Saturday at Bryant Stadium.
“The kids played outstanding defense,” stated Bryant Blue coach Dale Jones. “Patrick Karp and Tyler O’Neal and Wyatt Hoyt.
“Offensively, Logan Chambers played well and so did Randy Thomas. We had too many offensive mistakes. We cannot put the ball on the ground.”
