(Carrollton, GA) — Coach Cain Dean and his 10 under Maroon Braves squad shut out Villa Rica White 24-0 recently in the B-Bracket Kiwanis Bowl Championship game at the Carroll County Recreation Center in Carrollton.

Ashton Bonner led a strong rushing attack for the Braves and scored all three touchdowns including one long 75-yard romp in the third quarter.

Tristan Harris nailed the unusual extra point kicks after all three scores which results in two points in a recreation game.

The Braves defense also played a great game led by Kayden “Wildman” Minix, Eli Dean, Tristan Harris, Andrew Rogers, and Logan Patterson. Patterson came on tough in the fourth quarter making several big stops.

Noah Cantrell set the pace early on with a fumble recovery, while Minix also had a huge QB sack. Offensively, the top players of the game included Bonner, Wesley Crabtree, Cantrell, and offensive lineman Tyler “Truck” Arnold.

Eli Dean preserved the shutout with a big sack on the very last play of the game. It was sweet revenge for the core of the team after they had lost to a Villa Rica team in three Kiwanis finals over the last five years.

“You know I have had these same kids for six years and I am just so happy we get to end our run with a championship before some of them move on to middle school next year,” said Cain Dean after the game.

“I am just gleaming with pride at how these young boys have played this year. The best thing about this team is it was not just one player it was a whole team effort.”
