Western Brown rolled up 486 yards of total offense against the Campbell County Camels last Friday night to steamroll their way to a 42-14 victory.
The Broncos struck for a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter, pulling ahead 14-7. In the second quarter, Tomlin hit wide receiver Eean Hornung for a 30-yard strike to give the Broncos a 21-7 lead.
Western Brown promptly picked off the Camels on their next drive, setting up another touchdown toss from Tomlin. He connected with Wyatt Fischer from eight yards out, extending the Broncos’ lead to three touchdowns. The team would add a fourth score before halftime to go up 35-7 at halftime.
The Broncos added their sixth touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter, completing the 42-14 final score.
Senior quarterback Chaiten Tomlin completed 66 percent of his passes for 363 yards and five touchdowns in the blowout. Tomlin also carried the ball 12 times for 84 yards and a touchdown.
Hornung finished with 10 receptions for 147 yards and two touchdowns while Fischer chipped in 12 catches, 144 yards and a pair of scores as well. Carson Eyre had four catches for 34 yards and Western Brown’s other touchdown.
Western Brown’s defense pressured the Camels quarterback all game, forcing two picks and coming away with five sacks. Head coach Don Sizer said his team was ready to play the game.
“They were focused,” Sizer said. “They really had a good grasp of what we were trying to do and the atmosphere of the game was awesome. It ended up working out a lot like we wanted it to.”
The team’s success on defense gave the offense plenty of time to work with the ball and gave the defenders themselves a much-needed break.
“Everybody seemed to really understand what we wanted to get done and it translated really well on the defensive side,” Sizer said. “We ended up getting the ball back to the offense and didn’t stay on the field as much as we had in the previous games.
The Broncos traveled to Harrison Friday, October 2 to take on the Wildcats. Sizer said the Cats would be looking for revenge after last year’s tough loss to the Broncos.
“They’re a really good team,” Sizer said. “They’re going to be coming to the game with revenge on their mind because they missed a field goal at the end of the game so in their mind they think they should have won that game. They’re really well coached, they’re atheltic across the board. They’ve got some standout athletes.”
