Adversity is no stranger in the Brossart Football camp. Since our inception, it has occupied the penthouse
suite. It was announced earlier this week that Clay Kramer, who was back for his senior season at
quarterback and piloted the team through their opening game with Dayton and their 40-0 blitzkrieg of
Bracken County, was diagnosed with mono and would miss at least our next four ballgames. Re-enter
Junior Craig Pfefferman, who has been thrust into the QB role before, and Senior Garrett Ahlbrand, who
would be playing in his first high school football game at the position. Both performed as seasoned
veterans, spearheading an 85 yard scoring drive that ended the first quarter with the ball on the four - first
and goal. In the opening seconds of the second period, Ahlbrand carried the piggy the four yards for the
score and Frankie Cetrulo tacked on the extra point to give the Mustangs a 7-0 lead.
While the defense was masterful for the entire first half, one lapse allowed the Panther sophomore
quarterback, Devlin Carter, to score on a 62 yard broken-play run with just :53 left in the half, and when
Carter ran it in for the two-point conversion, just that quickly we had a new leader. Were the first half a
boxing match, all judges would have awarded the half to the Mustangs, however, the scoreboard read
Ludlow 8, Brossart 7.
The Mustangs appeared determined to counter-punch on the first series of the second half, after taking
possession at the Ludlow 40 and marching deep into the red zone. However, a rare turnover on an
intercepted pass ended the threat. Neither team put numbers on the board in the third. As each team
traded possessions throughout the remainder of the third and fourth periods, Ludlow managed a late-game
score and two-point conversion to account for the final score. The Mustangs begin Class 2-A district play
next week at Holmes High School when we take on the Holy Cross Indians.
|Lady Stangs Upset Defending "A" State Champion NCC
2-0 in 9th/10th Sectional, Will Join Boys At "A" State
| Volleyball Team Eliminated From Consolation Bracket of "A" State After Losing to
Eventual Runner-Up Green County. Congrats to St. Henry - "A" State Champs!!!
A poster on Bluegrass Preps earlier today (Saturday) was inquiring as to whom and when NCC would play
next week in the All "A" State Tournament. Sorry to disappoint, but the defending "A" State Champion
Breds Girls Soccer team won't be returning, having lost to Brossart 2-0 on Saturday afternoon on their
It will be the Lady Mustangs, who fell to the Breds a year ago in the sectional playoff, and then watched
from the sidelines as the Breds brought home the heavy hardware, who will represent the two Northern
Kentucky regions in E-Town. The Lady Stangs will take on the 1st/2nd Sectional Champ Murray at 9am
next Saturday on Field #11 - the one without a pressbox. I will have to give some serious thoughts to
broadcast possibilities to give both teams quality coverage.
|Fields Set For The Upcoming
All "A" State Soccer Tournament
The fields are set for this coming weekend's Touchstone Energy All "A" State Soccer Tournaments.
The boys open with Murray. The Murray Tigers come to E-Town with an 8-5 record after having defeated
Lyon County 4-1 in the 1st/2nd Regional Sectional. They sport wins over Christian County and Mayfield.
Brossart and Murray share the upper bracket with Lexington Christian and Oneida Baptist. Lexington
Christian is .500 at 5-5-1 and come out of the competitive Lexington region. They have lost narrowly,
1-0 to Lafayette, 3-0 to Ryle, and ato Dunbar 3-1. Their opponent is Oneida Baptist, making their
second appearance in the "A" Final Eight. The Mountaineers appear to be much improved, coming to
the big dance with a 8-2-1 record. They won their 13th/14th Region Sectional Playoff 10-0 over
Hazard. They win by big margins - Buckhorn (9-0), Knox Central (7-0), Whitley Co (9-1), and Middlesboro
(10-0). Their losses were to Frankfort (0-4) and North Laurel (2-3). Their contest with LexChristian should
be a competitive match.
In the bottom bracket, Bath County plays Owensboro. The Wildcats are the top team in the 16th
Region, nosing Paintsville 4-3 in their sectional battle, and come to Elizabethtown sporting a 10-3 mark.
They will face Owensboro Catholic, making their second trip to the "A" State, after losing 3-2 to Kentucky
Country Day a year ago. The Aces are 6-4 this season. They blew out Glasgow 6-0 in their sectional to
qualify for the "A" Final Eight. The bottom two teams in the lower bracket are Bethlehem and Louisville
Collegiate. Bethlehem is 4-7, but lost to 11-4 Elizabethtown 1-0 earlier in the season and Collegiate their
"A" State opponent 2-0 in their season opener. Collegiate, a nemesis of the Brossart basketball
program, has an 8-2 record, second best only to Louisville Trinity in the 7th Region. They own wins over
Male and Ky Country Day, and lost in overtime 0-1 to Louisville St. Xavier.
On the girls side of the ledger, the Lady Stangs also open with Murray, and they are in the upper
bracket with Owensboro Catholic and West Carter. The bottom bracket competition consists of
Lexington Christian, Kentucky Country Day, Bethlehem and Hazard. I will preview the girls' bracket teams
