(Franklin, GA) — The 10U Heard County Braves football team ended the season with an exciting 29-19 win over the Mount Zion Eagles Tuesday night at Staples Stadium in Franklin.

The game featured a plethora of first half scoring before the defenses for both quads took over late in the game.

The Braves led 29-19 at the half and that tally would remain before an exciting touchdown run on a 4th down and 8 by Amari Heath sealed the win for the Braves with just over two minutes to go in the game.

Heath had three TD runs in the game including a 44-yard scamper that gave the Braves a 23-13 lead in the second quarter.

Quarterback Major Lasseter scored the other Braves TD and also connected on two 2-point conversion passes.

Layne Toney came up with the huge defensive play for the Braves when he recovered an Eagle fumble to thwart a potential third quarter scoring drive.

The rest of the squad for the 10U Braves in the Farmer Bowl C-Bracket win included CJ Bonner, Joshua Janney, Rhett Lee, Caleb Janney, Zeke Barnes, Quientin Hausler, Carter Costley, Cayden Standfield, Owen Camp, Colby Buchanan, and Bentley Dewberry.

The 10U Brave cheerleaders that rooted the squad on Tuesday night included Payton Gaddy, Kali Meyers, Kami Meyers, and Maelyn Noles.

The 8U Braves will travel this Saturday morning to face Carroll County in the C-Bracket Farmer Bowl final at 9:00 AM at the Carroll County Recreation Department.
