The Maconaquah Braves scored in every quarter here Monday night and used a swarming defense to post a 40-0 shutout win over the North Miami Warriors in junior varsity action.
The Braves took the opening kickoff and controlled first quarter play with a 14-play, 62-yard scoring march that ate up 7:47 of clock. Quarterback Jacob Rush powered his way in from two yards out for the games first score. Kaden Law added the conversion run.
Colton Meyers supplied most of the legwork in the drive with 31 yards on seven carries.
After forcing a punt to start the second quarter, the Braves took over at the NM 47
and needed only six plays before hitting paydirt. After converting a fourth-and-three at the 37 and getting a four-yard gain by Meyers, Law sprinted outside with a 33-yard TD run at the 5:05 mark. Rush was good on the conversion run for a 16-0 lead that the Braves took into halftime.
North Miami’s Noah Beam took the second half kickoff and appeared to be heading for a long 84 yard TD return before Chase Potter ran him down at the Warrior 47 preserving the Maconaquah shutout. Three plays later, facing a third-and-five, Rush grabbed a Warrior fumble and rambled 51 yards to the house and followed with the PAT run, putting Mac on top, 24-0
Rush would score his third TD of the night four minutes later on a two-yard run. Law’s conversion run gave the Braves a 32-0 lead heading into the fourth stanza
Mac’s final scoring drive covered 60 yards and used nearly seven minutes of precious clock. Law capped the 11-play drive with a seven-yard TD run and Potter provided the final 40-0 count with the PAT run.
Law led coach Brian Mikesell’s strong rushing attack with 128 yards on 10 carries. Rush followed with 78 yards on 17 attempts, while Meyers had 12 totes for 47 yards.
Maconaquah’s defense limited NM to 111 rushing yards and one yard through the air in three attempts. The Braves had 13 first downs, while holding the Warriors to four.
