7-8 Braves 42, Carroll County Black 0 (Carrollton,Ga) - Coach Dean and the 7-8 Braves traveled to Carrollton Saturday to meet the Carroll County Black team and totally dominated the game from start to finish especially on defense.
The 7-8 Braves defense has not allowed a score during the last two games outscoring opponents 62-0. The Black team only had one first down in the entire game and on their longest play of about 30 yards Ashton Bonner stripped the ball which was recovered by Eli Lawson.
Kayden Minix was the beast on defense with 10 tackles mostly in the backfield. Minix also stripped the ball and ran it in for a defensive touchdown from over 50 yards away.
Other standout players on defense included Mason Bailey, Logan Patterson, and Bonner. Andrew Rogers also stepped up with a nice performance for the Braves.
Offensively, the key for the Braves was the offensive line who provided big holes and good protection for the quarterback all day long.
The line includes Will Alford, Wesley Crabtree, Brent Hull, Luke Bennett, Bailey, and Creighton Stevens. Noah Cantrell, Jameer Cook, and Bonner handled most of the scoring and all subs played well especially Todd Huey, Jr. who really hustled on every play he was in the game.

The offensive line made up of Bailey Scarborough, Anthony Graley, Trinity Wilson, Drew Cornelius, Mark Chambers, and Jacob Holdridge led the way up front with some awesome blocking.
