Broncos cruise to easy win

Published 10:26am Saturday, October 22, 2011

FRANKLIN—Travis Brown rushed for 135 yards and three touchdowns Friday night to lead Franklin High to a 42-22 non-district win over King & Queen County.

Franklin, which improved to 6-1, led 22-8 at halftime and coasted in the second half.

“Our kids executed well and now we will prepare for our game next Friday with Sussex Central,” said FHS head coach Darren Parker.

The visitors looked impressive on their opening drive, using a combination of single-wing and double-wing offenses to march down the field and take an 8-0 lead.

The Broncos didn’t get on the scoreboard until early in the second quarter on a 1-yard run by Terry Warren. Brown added the two-point conversion to tie the game at 8.

Set up by his own interception, Brown broke free for a 26-yard touchdown run and two-point conversion to give FHS its first lead at 16-8.

On offense again later in the quarter, Bronco quarterback Delvonte Boone went to the air on back-to-back plays, connecting with Brown for 42 yards and Marcus Stephens for 6 yards.

Brown added his second touchdown on a 20-yard run and another two-point conversion for the 22-8 halftime margin.

After returning the second-half kickoff to the visitors’ 30-yard line, Brown busted through the Tiger line for a 17-yard TD run. The two-point conversion failed, but the Broncos led 28-8.

The Tigers cut the lead to 28-16 before Franklin touchdowns by Latrell Lane and Keon Cosby clinched the victory.

Deshawn Saunders led the Broncos with 11 tackles. Tavis McKinney and Raquan Wright had 10 apiece.

    Mr. Davis my last comment came across wrong,my point is this nobody ever recognizes the Defensive player’s for their effort’s.The Broncos have had to adjust to so much after losing so many player’s.The back’s constantly get recognized for their effort’s and when the boy’s are talking they say “As usual nothing about us”These kid’s work hard on and off the field and not just Franklin,Southampton,and SA etc.I just ask that in the future if you could give some of these kid’s a few line’s of glory.Thank you.

    I find it strange that every week my son makes good play’s and lead’s the team in sack’s and has yet to be recognized.In this game he had a fumble recovery that resulted in a touchdown and then a interception with a 47 yard return to the 2 yard line that resulted in a touchdown.He is a senior and has started for 3 year’s and work’s hard and yet is never recognized,WHY!I have a theory but I’ll letthe new’s media address this problem.
