Scott defeated Boyle Co 7-4 and advance to play Trinity in the Elite Eight on Saturday
On the final night of the 2014 Brossart football season, the Mustangs were simply steamrolled by Gallatin County's
blue-chip running back, 6'1" Senior Chris Brown. Brown scored four touchdowns on the night, while racking up hundreds
of yards. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball, without possessing a dominant breakaway running threat, the
Mustangs scored on drives of 10 plays for 67 yards, 4 plays for 48 yards, a 35 yard pass play, and 16 plays for 75
yards. It should be quite obvious that the guys wearing green had to work much harder to put numbers on the scoreboard
than did their home-standing opponents on their senior night.
Credit this Mustangs team. They came to play tonight, and despite the dominance of Brown, were within one
possession of winning or sending this game to overtime with just 2:11 left in their season.
Senior Quarterback Clay Kramer engineered a 67 yard drive on our first possession capped off by a Logan Schoulthies
2 yard plunge into the endzone, giving the Mustangs a 7-0 lead, following an Ahlbrand PAT.
Gallatin County answered and then took the lead at 14-7 following a 3 yard Brown run, and a 63 yard Trent Brock to
Christian Courtney pass play.
Frankie Cetrulo made it 14-13 capping off the Mustangs 48 yard drive on a 3rd and Goal advenutre from the 2 yard line
and Ahlbrand then split the uprights for the second time on the night to tie it at 14-14. Gallatin County capitalized on a
rare Brossart special teams mistake just before the end of the half and scored on a Brock to Isiah Streine pass play that
gave the home team a 20-14 advantage and momentum at the half.
Brossart kicked-off to the Wildcats who had deferred to start the game, but their deference was short lived when Coach
Paul Wiggins ordered an on-sides kick to open the second half. The Mustangs were enroute to tying up the football
game at 20-20 when Sophomore Jake Martin recovered the football to spearhead a Mustangs drive that saw Senior Joe
Donnelly score on a 35 yard pass completion from Clay Kramer for a touchdown.
Gallatin County went to their blue-chipper shortly thereafter and Chris Brown broke away for a 30 yard touchdown to give
his Wildcats a 26-20 lead, which was the score at the end of three periods.
The Wildcats got an insurance touchdown at the start of the third quarter when they
called on Brown once again, and he responded with a 28 yard run to the endzone.
Upon successful conversion of the 2-point PAT, the Cats appeared comfortably
ahead at 34-20. But as Don Weber used to say on his ICN-6 sports reports,
"The Mustangs Came Back."
It took Clay Kramer 16 plays to eat up 75 yards of real estate that ended with his
hittting Garrett Ahlbrand on a 5 yard pass that brought the Mustangs back to within
one possession at 34-27 after Frank Cetrulo knocked through the extra point.
The Mustangs season came to an end with 2:11 to play in the game when Chris
Brown turned off the lights and slammed the door closed on the Mustangs with his
final and longest touchdown run of the night, a 56 yard jailbreak that put the nail in
the Mustangs' coffin and officially sent us to basketball season.
I join Coach Paul Wiggins, who gets emotional when talking about this team - "the
team that in his opinion saved the Brossart Football Program" - in seeing this thing
through to fruition, and echo his sentiments that the win-loss column was simply not
kind to us. While it hurts to watch, I'm always happy to see tears from our players
following the conclusion of a season. It tells me that it meant something to them.
Tonight following our season ending loss, there were plenty of tears. While we
graduate seven seniors and a senior manager, I personally feel that the move
back to Class 1-A will re-energize Brossart Football and we will start taking the steps
necessary to grow it into a consistently winning, successful football program. I think
that Coach Paul Wiggins will provide the stability and leadership to get the job done.
Congratulations to the 2014 Football Mustangs, you have earned our respect and
admiration, and more importantly - You were fun to watch play the game!!!!!
| Over the past few weeks I've become
a huge Joe Donnelly fan.
The young man who now wears #88
has great hands, and a knack for
returning kick-offs to give his team
superior field postion.
In the Gallatin game Joe scored on a
35 yard pass play, and set up another
score with a 25 yard reception.
|Brossart Athletic Director Adam Franzen announced today that Coach Paul Wiggins
and his staff will be returning for the 2015 Brossart Varsity Football Season.
This is great news for our football program in what we hope will continue to be the start of a
long and successful tenure with the Football Mustangs.
