Alconbury puts the brakes on skid
The drought ended in a flood of points Saturday as Alconbury stopped Brussels 42-0 in a Division IV high school football game at Brussels. "We hadn’t won a game since 2005," Alconbury coach Duke Eidt said by telephone Saturday. "Oddly, we beat Brussels that time, too."
Devin Pryor handled the biggest load for the Dragons (1-1 overall and D-IV). He scored four touchdowns, three on runs of 31, 74 and 10 yards, according to Eidt, and returned a punt 42 yards for a TD. In a game that was called at halftime by the 39-point courtesy rule, he exploited the spaces created by the nine-man game to rush six times for 180 yards.
Kerry Kuheana ran 30 yards for a TD, and quarterback Jimmy Luong tossed a touchdown pass to Greg Pettiway for the Dragons.
According to coach Joe Fiedler, Mike Seely made four tackles and carried eight times for 30 yards for Brussels (0-2, 0-2).
"We felt like we had the potential to be a good team even after what happened against Rota (a 40-6 loss the previous Saturday)," Eidt said. "We worked hard last week to improve. We’re excited to have the monkey off our backs."
