Brussels bounces back to even up record
BRUSSELS, Belgium -- The Brussels Brigands recorded their first win of the six-man football era on Saturday with a 46-6 defeat of the visiting Baumholder Bucs.
Brussels’ Ryan Smith ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, to which Baumholder responded with a touchdown catch by Jeremiah Christopher. That was all the offense the Bucs would manage, while Brussels scored 40 unanswered points to pull away.
Troy Erwin rushed for 156 yards, Tahze Vaughn collected 123 rushing yards and Kimouri Vaughn added 82 yards on the ground for the Brigands.
The game brought Brussels to an even 1-1 in DODEA-Europe’s five-team Division III league, following the previous weekend’s 51-14 loss against AFNORTH. The Brigands have two weeks off before visiting Ansbach on Oct. 13.
Saturday marked the first six-man kickoff for Baumholder, which was idle in the season’s first week. The Bucs dropped into Division III just prior to the season after their roster fell short of the numbers needed to play 11-man ball in Division II. Baumholder hosts Hohenfels next weekend.
