Lincoln Prep 14
On Friday night in front of a large home crowd, the Glenbrook Apaches were able to get back in the win column by knocking off the previously unbeaten Lincoln Prep Panthers, 48-14.
After recovering an onside kick attempt by the Panthers, the Apaches capped off an 8 play, 55-yard opening drive with a 17-yard rushing touchdown by DJ Carter. After a successful extra point by Ty Feaster, the Apaches quickly led 7-0.
The Apache special teams followed the opening touchdown with an onside kick of their own that they recovered at the 50 yard line. The offense then went on a 6 play, 50-yard drive that culminated in a 7-yard Turner McLelland touchdown reception from Ty Feaster. After a failed extra point, the Apache lead was 13-0.
The Apache defense took the field for their first series of the night and turned away a nice Panther drive by knocking down a pass on 4th down deep in their own territory, giving the ball back to their offense on their own 20 yard line.
The Apache offense once again found the end zone on a 31-yard Cason Clemons touchdown reception from Ty Feaster.
After both teams traded offense possessions, the Apache defense forced the Panthers to punt from their own 30 yard line. Maddox Mandino quickly scooped up the ball at his own 34 yard line before returning the punt for a 66-yard touchdown. After a blocked extra point attempt, the Apaches held a 26-0 lead midway through the 2nd quarter.
A Hayden Harmon interception on the Panthers’ next possession set the Apache offense up deep in Lincoln Prep territory.
The Apache offense took only three plays for Ty Feaster to find Cale Hollis from seven yards out for his third passing touchdown of the night and a 33-0 lead after the successful extra point.
On the ensuing possession, the Lincoln Prep quarterback dropped back into his own end zone where he was sacked by Jonathan Bryant for the safety, giving the Apaches a 35-0 lead with less than a minute to go in the half.
The Panther defense got on the board after returning an Apache fumble 89 yards for the touchdown to finish out the first half of play with the score at 35-6.
The Panthers received the second half kickoff and looked to build on the momentum of their last-second touchdown to end the first half. However, a hard hit on the Panther running back by Hayden Harmon dislodged the football and the Apache defense recovered the fumble.
The offense jumped on the board once again after a 13 play, 65-yard drive where Tre Kent found the end zone from 10 yards out to put the game well out of reach for the Apaches.
“Tonight was a great night for us. We got after them from the opening quarter and stayed on them and got to play all of the young guys,” said Coach David Feaster. “This sets up a great match up between us and a really good Homer team next week in front of a huge home crowd.”
