High Octane Lions...
Brownwood vs. Snyder was one of those games I had circled on my calender from the start of the season. Brownwood was undefeated and was destroying their opponents every game. Snyder had one of their best teams that they've put on the field in a very long time. Both teams had been racking up the points in the previous weeks, Brownwood had a point where they scored on 26 straight possessions over three games, and Snyder was scoring in the 40's most of its games. This was also one of the games the players were looking to. After talking to some of the Snyder players at the start of the year they were all looking forward to the game and were confident they could win.
At the end of the first half the score was 27-12 and Snyder could have easily tied the game if not for two turnovers. And, that may have changed the way the second half went. However, Brownwood came out and just took over in the third quarter. Snyder made a few more mistakes and ended up turning the ball over four more times in the second half and Brownwood finished the game winning 61-20. And while the score may look bad, this is what the Lions have been doing to every team they've played this year. I have a feeling I'll be watching them play a lot more in late November and December.
