Injured Eagles take Jax heat

-A A +A
By Jenna McKenna

Adding injury to fatigue, Bronson High's football team limped up to Jacksonville-Providence High Friday and had a bad night.

The Eagles were without the services of lead running back Virgil Greenlee, who left the previous week's game against St. Joseph with a badly sprained ankle. Furthermore, fullback Jermey Mayes' turf toe, suffered two weeks ago in practice, was still bothering him.

The worst was to come.

Providence hammered the Eagles 41-0, running, as Bronson head coach Greg Brochetti said, "the same three plays all night."

"They really didn't have any stars," he said. "They were just a really disciplined team; they did everything well and didn't make any mistakes."

In the second quarter, with Providence already up by three touchdowns, Eagles' QB Kelby Barber suffered a stinger and defensive star Brandon Young suffered a gruesome hand injury.

"We think he got his hand caught on someone's helmet and when he pulled it away, it opened up a huge gash that took 14 stitches to close," said Brochetti.

The injury toll was incredible for one game.
