The middle school football team was clicking on both sides of the ball Thursday night, as they cruised to a victory over PAC rival Wellington. The Cards jumped ahead early and never trailed, finishing with a score of 28-22. It was the last home game of the season, and Brookside came out fired up to start the game, forcing the Dukes to go three and out on their first drive. Brookside scored quickly, with quarterback Jake Montgomery sneaking in from the one and Kenny Grobolsek pushing through for the conversion. Another defensive stop and another scoring drive had the home team up 14-0 early with Grobolsek breaking multiple tackles on his way to a score. Montgomery came up with another big play, this time on the defensive side of the ball, stepping in front of a Wellington pass for a big interception. Karson Nail, Dawson Gainer, Michael Gomes and Gavin Schuster all had nice runs in this game, as the Cards spread the wealth offensively, but it was another touchdown run by Grobolsek just before the half that had Brookside ahead 22-0 at the half. The second half featured more runs by Nail, Gomes and Gainer, with another late touchdown by Grobolsek to seal the game for the Cards. Wellington showed a lot of pride in battling back, notching 2 scoring drives of their own before pulling off a wild trick play for a third score to make the final points of the night. With the win the Cards move to 4-3 on the season, with only one game left on the slate, a long journey into Medina County to face the Buckeye Bucks on Thursday October 12th.
