Brook Hill rallies in last 48 seconds to nip Frankston



BULLARD – The head coaching debut for Brook Hill head coach Bobby Brasher was more than any coach could ever ask for. Watching your son scoring the game-winning touchdown with less than a minute in the game was a memory more than any dad could ever ask for.

The Brook Hill Guard overcame five costly turnovers, and Seth Brasher’s last minute deflection catch was enough for the Guard to escape with a 21-18 win over Frankston on Thursday night at Herrington Stadium.

“The kid’s did a great job of sticking with it, and to win a game the way it ended was almost like it was a God-send,” the former Brook Hill offensive coordinator, Brasher said when asked how he felt about his son being in on the winning catch.”

Brasher, son of the first-year head coach used great concentration to haul in Zac Wilson’s tipped pass, and fleet-footed enough to out-run the Frankston Indians defensive backs for a 79-yard, game-winning touchdown with 49-seconds left in the game.

Frankston appeared to have a road win on the way scoring late in the game when sophomore wide receiver, Kendrick Rogers snagged a 12-yard scoring strike from quarterback, Ozzie Buckner. The PAT kick attempt was fumbled on the snap, and an 18-15, Frankston lead with only 1:15 left in the contest.

Looking bleak for Brook Hill, and trailing 18-15, the senior quarterback, Wilson was shuttled back into the lineup for teammate, Grant Hanks.

The senior rolled out of the pocket, planted and heaved downfield into double-coverage.

However, one Indian got a piece of the tailing pass, and the tip went straight-up in the air.

Brasher looked the ball into his hands while on the run, and outraced the two remaining Frankston defensive backs and the win.
