Bruins Outlast Pride, Earn Bowl-Game Bid

On a surprisingly clear Friday evening, Brunswick outlasted Trinity Pawling, coming away with a 28-20 victory and sending the large student section onto Cosby Field to join the team in celebration. 

Prior to the game, the team honored the 25 seniors (listed below) who have contributed to the successful 7-2 season this year and laid the foundation for years to come. Their heart, passion, and leadership set the tone for this year and beyond.

Continuing on his outstanding performance from last week, Kha’lil Eason got the scoring started with a 15-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Trinity-Pawling answered back quickly, marching down the field to even the score at seven.

Early in the second quarter, the Bruins gave the crowd some excitement as Ashton Winegardner caught a short pass and promptly tossed the ball to Hunter Clark who raced 60 yards untouched down the right sideline for a touchdown. While the fans and the sideline were certainly excited, it seemed as though announcer Mike Harris may have been the most excited person in the stadium about the hook and ladder play, one of his favorites of all time.  

Continuing on the back-and-forth theme of the evening, T-P answered right back and the teams went into halftime deadlocked at 14. 

Settling into a rhythm on offense, the Bruins took to the ground with a “thunder and lightning” style attack; Clark provided hard running between the tackles, picking up tough yards in chunks after contact while Eason was the lightning as he quickly found the edges and ran away from everyone. Most importantly, the work on the offensive line of Miles Walker, Cliff Belknap, Michael Burton, Will Janis, and Matty Augustine paved the way for the duo of backs in the third and fourth quarters.

Eason scored the next two for the Bruins, the first on a run through the left side of the line for a 25-yard score to go up 21-14. The Pride answered back, though the point-after try was unsuccessful, so the Bruins held a one-point advantage. Eason broke another run for a 15-yard touchdown to give the Bruins a bit more breathing room. 

Trinity-Pawling never quit, and drove down into Bruin territory before running out of time. 

With the win, the Bruins (7-2) earned a bid into NEPSAC's Mike Silipo Bowl and will host Deerfield Academy (8-1) on Saturday. Kick-off on Cosby Field is scheduled for 1 p.m.
