Braves come from behind to beat Mustangs
Coach Kyle Ward
The Braves traveled to Deadwood on Saturday and played a very tough Little Wound Mustang team. Both teams came out slow as Little Wound was the first to get on the board. The Braves quickly responded with a touchdown of their own as Jade Farlee ran in from 22 yards out. The game was close as they headed into halftime as Little Wound lead 14-6. The Braves came out of halftime and put a score up on the board as Cory Knight ran in for a TD from 10 yards out with Dillon Nelson adding the two-point conversion. The Mustangs would also put another touchdown on the board to lead 21-14 going into the fourth quarter. In the fourth quarter the Braves would put two more touchdowns on the scoreboard. Katana Bartlett ran one in from 11 yards out and the last touchdown came from Jade Farlee scoring from three yards out to win 28-21.
The Braves finished the game with 428 total yards of offense, with 378 rushing yards and 50 yards passing. Katana Bartlett rushed 13 times for 153 yards and Jade Farlee carried the ball 13 times for 107 yards. Quarterback Cray Allen completed three of nine passes for 50 yards. On defense, Tyler Pickner led the Braves with 10 tackles; Jade Farlee had nine tackles along with a forced fumble and a sack. Hayden Neigel finished the contest with five tackles and a sack. Next up the Braves will host the Mobridge-Pollock Tigers on Friday at 6 p.m. for Parents’ Night.
