Mayde Creek is back in the playoffs for the first time since 2008, the Rams taking on Fort Bend Bush…
It’s scoreless until the 2nd, when Bush’s Donovan Nixon finds the end zone from two yards out, Broncos open up a 7-nothing lead.
Mayde Creek responds, as John Zolacha(Zo-LAH-chuh) connects with Daniel Huery(WARE-ee), and Huery scoots into the end zone from there, it’s a 24-yard touchdown pass, and it’s knotted up 7-7 heading to intermission.
Mayde Creek leads 14-7 in the third, but Bush’s defense comes up big, as James Milo falls on the loose ball in the end zone for a Broncos touchdown, that evens things up at 14 apiece.
Mayde Creek marches right back down the field, however, and Donte Jones keeps it for a 1-yard touchdown run, Rams lead 21-14 after 3.
Then in the fourth, it’s Julius Loughridge(LO-ridge) getting the carry, and watch the effort and determination from Loughridge to fight his way across the goal line, 12 well-earned yards for the score, he rushes for 196 on the night and the Rams lead 27-14.
It’s 27-21 with Bush driving late in the game, but Joseph Kinyock comes up with the interception for the Rams, and Mayde Creek wins its first postseason game in 22 years, 27-21 is the final, and the Rams advance to face the winner of our next game.
