Posted Monday, September 18, 2006 by Hinesville Coastal Courier

Bradwell Institute's gauntlet of non-region games ended Friday night with a 34-0 loss at Coffee County.

The Tigers' offense struggled, only gaining 78 yards in the loss.

However, the game was still in question until the third quarter. The Tigers trailed only 7-0 at half-time.

In fact, the Trojans did not score until 90 seconds remaining in the first half when Melvin Loving rushed for a three-yard touchdown.

Jeff Miller's Tiger defense bended but did not break in the first half, surrendering 119 yards of offense in the first half and forcing a fumble inside the Bradwell 20-yard line.

In the first half, the Tiger offense sputtered, gaining only eight yards and turning over the ball twice.

Koreen Burch intercepted a Wilson Brown pass and Corey Davis recovered a fumble on a punt return.

The Trojans opened up the second half with a 93-yard touchdown drive.

Quarterback Daniel Anderson connected with Akeen Wesley on a 37-yard touchdown.

On Bradwell's ensuing possession, Burch picked off his second pass of the night and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown.

Within just a few short minutes, Bradwell trailed 21-0.

The Trojans never looked back, scoring again on a 61-yard drive.

Anderson connected with DeMario Bennett for a 25-yard touchdown, and

the Trojans were out to a comfortable 27-0 lead.

Anderson finished the game 8-16 for 153 yards and two touchdowns.

The Trojans finished the game with 296 yards of total offense.

The Tiger defense held Loving to under 100 yards for the first time all year. The senior gained only 55 yards on 14 carries.

Preston Frasier led the Tigers on the ground with 41 yards on eight carries.

Brown completed four of seven passes for 40 yards.

The Tigers, wanting to prepare themselves for region competition, scheduled three difficult opponents to open the season.

They went zero for three and now have an extra week to prepare before their Region 3AAAAA schedule begins on Sept. 29 at home against Beach.
