BA Falls to Brown

The football team has a tough match up this week as they traveled down to Providence Rhode Island to play the Brown University JV squad. Although it was a well played game, Bridgton ultimately lost 31-18 to Brown. Bridgton came out of the gates fast, scoring on the third play of the game on a screen pass from quarterback Mitch Graziano (Kingston, MA) to wide receiver Derek Beck (Martinsville, NJ) for a 75 yard touchdown. Brown quickly answered with a long 69 yard touchdown pass of their own giving Brown a 7-6 lead just minutes into the game. The next score was a Brown touchdown pass with just under five minutes to go in the half. Bridgton was the team to answer back this time with a score right before the half with a touchdown reception to Austin Harrington (Chanhassen, MN) from quarterback Mike Luks (Amherst, NH). Brown had a slight 14-12 lead going into the half.

The second half started off with a “Brown Bang”. Only 21 seconds into the half, Brown threw for a 54 yard touchdown making the game 21-12. Bridgton got the ball back and threw an interception which led to the second consecutive touchdown drive for Brown in the second half giving them a 28-12 lead. In the fourth quarter, Brown extended their lead with a field goal to make the score 31-12. Bridgton showed some life and made a successful drive which ended in a touchdown pass to Harrington. Brown blocked the extra point, and took away the 31-18 win.
