After a tough loss in week one, the BSHS varsity football team inserted itself into the win column with a 28-20 victory over Eudora on Sept. 13. 

The Braves defense had key stops in the second half to hold off the Cardinals. The Braves offense was led by the rushing attack of Bryce Krone who tallied in 270 yards and four touchdowns. 

“The last time I had that many touchdowns was in little league,” said Krone. 

Nearing the end of the first quarter, Krone sliced through the defense and took it 80 yards to the house. Krone commented on his career-long run, “As soon as I broke through and saw green I wasn’t going to let anyone touch me.” 

When asked about his mindset carrying the ball, he said, “I just wanted to get in the endzone…in order to help my team win.”

The Braves were able to clean up the mistakes, only accounting for four total penalties, whereas last week they were in the double digits. The main focus going into the Eudora week, according to head coach Chad Eaddy, was to “play a clean football game and play mistake-free football.” 

“We grew from week number one, but we still have things we can continue to work on and things that we can fix,” Eaddy said.

Eaddy said that the team believes they should only celebrate a win or mourn a loss for 24 hours, but after that, it’s back to work. The Braves look to build off the win in their next matchup with Spring Hill tonight at 7 p.m.
