On Brookfield’s first offensive possession, Tyler Briggs rumbled his way into the end zone from a yard out to give the Warriors a 7-0 advantage.

Crestview, once again, put together a strong drive. The first time, they were forced to punt. This time, the Rebels found the end zone as Brandon Yanssens took the ball into the end zone for the tying score (7-7) on the first play from scrimmage of the second quarter.

Brookfield retakes the lead on a Briggs 32-yard halfback touchdown pass to Gage Emery. The Warriors piled on with another touchdown pass – this time from QB Haeden Gibson to Dakota King on a 73-yard connection.

Following a turnover, Brookfield got the ball back before the first half ended as they registered another touchdown from Briggs to extend the lead to 21 points (28-7).

Brookfield opened the second half with a long pass play from Gibson to King to set the Warriors up inside the Rebel 20-yard line. A few plays later, Briggs runs in another touchdown to stretch the lead to 35-7.

Crestview strikes back with excellent field positon deep inside Brookfield’s territory. Ethan Powell goes in to cut the deficit to 21-points (35-14).

The Warriors’ Gibson found Emery on a 65-yard touchdown completion (Gage’s 2nd TD of the game) to retake a 28-point lead (42-14).

Gibson picks up his 3rd touchdown pass of the game by connecting to King once again (from 25 yards away) to go up, 49-14.
