On Friday, September 16, Glenbrook School faced Delta Charter School in an exciting matchup at Glenbrook’s Apache Stadium. The Apaches played hard throughout each quarter, resulting in their 56-8 win. Varsity Football Head Coach David Feaster expressed his excitement for the team by exclaiming, “Tonight we really took care of business and looked good on both sides of the ball.”
The football game started in a suspenseful manner for the Apaches when Delta Charter recovered an onside attempt and completed a pass to the 20 yard line. Scoring a touchdown, and a 2-point conversion soon after, the Storm took the lead with 10:46 left in the first quarter.
Quickly following Delta Charter’s touchdown, Landry Powell put the Apaches into good field position and led the team to an Apache first down. Ty Feaster then passed the football to DJ Carter who dodged the Storm defenders, earning the Apaches their first touchdown and 2-point conversion. The Apaches tied the score 8-8 with 8:42 left in the first quarter.
Rhett Johnson, Hayden Harmon, and Jackson Waller each made huge defensive plays for the Apaches resulting in the Apaches regaining possession of the football. Coach Feaster included, “Turnovers are always huge for us and gave the Apaches an opportunity to put the Storm away early.” Ty Feaster threw a long pass to Turner McLelland, moving the Apaches within scoring position. On the next play, Feaster found a hole in the defense and scored yet another Apache touchdown. Feaster’s extra point was successful, adjusting the score to 15-8.
Defensive players Luke Vining, Toby Haulmark, Jonathon Bryant, Mason Farnell, Daivari Jackson, and Waller forced Delta Charter to turnover the ball. With 0:09 left in the first quarter, Cason Clemons caught a long pass from Feaster, scoring an Apache touchdown, and later a successful extra point. The Apaches increased their lead to 22-8.
Harmon made a huge interception at the beginning of the second quarter and led the Apaches into scoring position. DJ Carter scored a touchdown for Glenbrook, while Feaster kicked a successful extra point. The Storm could not seem to get their offense going and just moments later the Apaches regained the ball. Maddox Mandino earned another touchdown for Glenbrook. With 4:21 left until halftime, the Apaches took an astonishing 36-8 lead over the Delta Charter Storm.
With just 1:27 left in the half, Feaster connected with Cason Clemons twice and moved the ball quickly down the field. The duo of Feaster to Carter easily earned another Apache touchdown moving the score to 43-8 to end the first half of the game. As stated by Coach Feaster, “Even though I was calling the plays, I felt like I could call any play because the boys were taking care of business.”
In the second half, the Storm attempted an onside kick, but the Apaches took over the ball at the 30 yard line. Feaster made a stellar pass, this time to Powell. Chase Sentell then scored his first touchdown of the night, and Feaster completed the extra point, both allowing the Apaches to reach the score of 50-8 at the top of the third quarter. Johnson soon caught a huge interception giving the Apaches another chance to extend their lead. Landry Powell stepped into the quarterback position along with Ryan Reagan. Reagan completed a pass to Seth Mangrum, and eventually led to Connor Williams scoring his first touchdown and sealing the final score of 56-8.
Glenbrook’s huge win tonight resulted in the Apaches going 3-0. Coach Feaster was very proud of the Apaches, and complemented each aspect of the team. Next Friday, September 23 at 7 p.m., Glenbrook will take on a very tough Haynesville Golden Tornado team at Apache Stadium. Coach Feaster included the Apaches are “really excited about Haynesville and know how big the game will be.”
