Brook Hill came away with a well-rounded victory over Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill Friday night at Herrington Stadium, one in which virtually all phases of the Guard's game stood out.
Brook Hill went on to outscore the Tigers 47-27, to improve to 3-0 in TAPPS Division II, District 2 — the Guard's overall record is now 4-2.
Guard running back Gabe Lucio terrorized the Tiger defense for 233 yards on 30 rushes. He also scored a pair of touchdowns.
Brook Hill quarterback Grant Hanks went 14-of-21 fro 134 yards (1 TD, 1 INT). He also scored two rushing touchdowns and picked up 53 yards in nine scampers.
Tyrone Brown added a touchdown via the ground for the winners.
Defensively, Brook Hill was paced by Alex hale and Jacob Dumesnil, who had a pair of interceptions apiece.
Hale returned one of his interceptions 85 yards for a Guard touchdown.
Brook Hill led only by six, 26-20, at intermission, but outscored the Tigers (3-3, 0-3) 21-7 in the second half.
Even though the Guard are on a roll of sorts, receiver Seth Brasher said that it is important that his team stay grounded.
“We just want to take it week by week,” he said. “The defense played well (Friday) and it was great to win on homecoming.”
Brook Hill should find the going to be a bit tougher this week when the Guard travel to play Dallas Christian, the pre-season choice to win the district title.
