Big plays ignite Middle Braves to undefeated regular season

(Franklin) — The Heard County Middle School Braves defeated Central 24-0 Thursday at home to close out a perfect 6-0 regular season.

Coach Dustin Lane’s squad now faces two more wins to earn a West Georgia Small School Conference Championship.

The squad will host fourth-seeded Bowdon in the conference semi-finals tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, October 12 at 5:30 PM.

The Braves defeated Bowdon 8-0 earlier in the season in one of the toughest match-ups they faced.

Ashton Bonner led the way on Thursday with two long TD runs of 50 and 60 yards. Kayden “Wildman” Minix scored the other TD on a short burst from two yards away.

Quarterback Leroy Marsh had a nice game leading the offense and making several nice throws to Ayden Cannon while under pressure.

The middle school recognized the eighth grade players, managers, cheerleaders, and band members prior to the game.
