Brookland-Cayce Ends Losing Streak to Chapin

Posted

Brookland-Cayce defeated Chapin by a 33-21 score Friday night at Fort Knox.

It was the first win over the Eagles since 2013 and snapped a five-game losing streak in the series.  

The Bearcats fumbled after receiving the kickoff, but the defense held, and the offense went on a scoring blitz.
Deshawn Washington capped an 80-yard scoring drive with a score with 7:06 left in the first quarter. Naahzeikial Mays, who rushed for 212 yards and three touchdowns, completed a 28-yard pass to Jackson Thomas on the drive. 

It was the only Brookland-Cayce pass of the first half. 
The Bearcats then recovered an onside kick and started a drive on the Chapin 40. They moved down the field before Mays punched it in to extend the lead to 13-0 after the PAT was partially blocked.
After Brookland-Cayce forced a turnover on downs, it scored again on a Washington touchdown with 9:10 left in the first quarter to make it 19-0.

Mays added a 50-yard touchdown run to give the Bearcats a 26-0 lead with 3:55 left in the second quarter.  
Chapin got on the scoreboard with seven seconds left on a two-yard touchdown run by Nolan Beerman. The PAT failed to keep the score at 26-6.

In the first half, Mays had 157 yards on 10 carries. Brookland-Cayce had also racked up more than 300 yards in offense in the first half.

Chapin scored first in the third period but failed on the 2-point conversion. On Brookland-Cayce's drive, Mays broke off two long runs and Evan Golden had a run of 20-plus yards to set up a fourth and goal. Mays punched it in for a touchdown from the one.

Chapin scored a touchdown with 4:43 left in the 4th quarter and collected a safety to close out the scoring.

The Bearcats (2-3) are off next week, while Chapin (3-2) plays host to A.C. Flora.
