Bulldogs fall, 19-14

The Brunswick High School varsity football team fell to 1-3 on the season after dropping a hard-fought 19-14 decision at Rappahannock HS in Warsaw on Thursday night. “Turnovers and penalties were the difference in the game. The kids played good enough to win the game on both sides of the ball,” said Brunswick coach Darrell Owens. “We had a good week of preparation. This was definitely the best we played on offense and defense all season. We had penalties that caused us to have a pick 6 called back and a 30 plus yard rush that would have put us inside their 5-yard line late in the fourth quarter. Without the penalties and turnovers, we would’ve scored at least three more touchdowns.”
