The defending state champion Brookville Bees have shown no signs of slowing down early this season. Jeff Woody's club has simply beat up on its first four opponents, averaging a robust 51 points a game.
Friday night figured to be the Bees' toughest test to date as they opened Seminole District play at Jefferson Forest, where quarterback Ryan Crist and the Cavaliers were an equally impressive 4-0.
The engines were firing and ready to roll in Bedford County where Jeff Woody and the visiting Bees had won five in a row in the series.
Up 14-0 in the first, Brookville pulled out the play of the day. A short toss from Kendall Becraft to Ben Hogg, but it was the hook and ladder to Anthony Calloway down the sideline. He cut it back 42 yards to the house which made the score 21-zip.
Anthony Calloway described it saying, "It worked perfectly. Kendall got it out to Ben, everybody bit on the pass. That's a play, and speed, when you're not expecting it there's not a lot you can do."
"Now we kind of got to put it in our back pockets for the next three, four games. I shouldn't say that on the news because now the guys that are watching this will know and they'll defend it." Jeff Woody
Calloway's dad's family all went to JF and he was not done showing off in front of the hostile crowd. In the second quarter, he went for 29 yards and another score. He had 86 yards on nine carries.
Brookville was cruising 34-0 before the Cavs got on the board. QB Ryan Crist sent the jump ball to his go-to guy, Dominique Royal.
But Brookville came right back and marched down the field with that spread no-huddle. Hilson Atkins scampered in from eight yards out for one of his three touchdowns of the night.
"Other teams, they have to watch out because we got so many weapons. We just get together as a team and we was amped up tonight because it's a rivalry game and we was ready to go." Hilson Atkins.
"It's the first one I see open. That's how I do it. First one that gets open is the one that gets the ball. We're going to stick to that method." Kendall BeCraft.
It was 41-7 at halftime. JF got a nice play as Royal burst free down the sideline for a 90-yard score. It was a rare highlight for the Cavs as Brookville blew the doors off before literally turning out the lights on a 63-14 win.
According to Don Rice, "Power outage, maybe a hailstorm, maybe a tornado will come through, a witch would fly through on a broom. I don't know."
Brookville finished with 197 yards on the ground, and another 316 through the air for a total of 513. Kendall Becraft was 16-of-36 for316 yards, three touchdowns, and a rushing TD. Hilson Atkins finished with 11 carries for 87 yards and three TDs, and Anthony Calloway added 9 carries for 86 yards and two TDs.
Jefferson Forest finished with 194 yards of total offense (33 rush yards; 161 passing).
