9-10 Braves #2 (Owens) 22, Carroll Co. White 0 (Franklin/C-Bracket) – Coach Scott Owens and his 9-10 Braves scored a big win over Carroll Co. White 22-0 to advance to the next round. Travion Dunson was big for the Braves with all three touchdowns scored. Tray Owens was also big on both sides of the ball with several long runs, a fumble recovery, and impressive kicking on extra points. Also defensively, Caden Raines had both an interception and a fumble recovery. The Braves will now face off this Saturday in Round 2 at Central High School in Carrollton. (4:00 p.m.)

Trojan Gold 14, 9-10 Braves #1 (Yates) 12 (Franklin/A-Bracket) – The undefeated 9-10 Braves Coached by Brad Yates suffered a difficult loss to the Trojan Gold team in the very competitive A Bracket. Jackson Yates had a 79-yard touchdown rush setting up a short touchdown pass to his brother Brady and the Braves led 6-0 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Trojans answered with a 7-yard touchdown run and a 2-point conversion pass to lead 8-6. They scored again midway through the 4th quarter but the conversion was no good leaving the door open for the Braves at 14-6. Brady Jackson scampered into the endzone with just 33 seconds to go in the game setting up a 2-point conversion attempt to tie the score. Unfortunately, this was a difficult conversion attempt as the Trojans knew the Braves would have to pass for the 2 points and they were able to stop the Braves. The Braves impressive season, in which they gave up only six points defensively during the whole regular season, comes to an end in heart-breaking fashion.

11- 12 Braves (Head) Bye – The 11-12 Braves enjoyed a week off with a first round bye but will be back in action this Saturday at UWG (4:00 p.m.) vs. Carroll Co.
