Bryson Cowboys shorten Longhorns; on their way to playoffs
With the playoffs on the horizon, the Bryson Cowboys football team made sure they headed into their bye week on a high note to close out the regular season last Friday night.
A road trip to face the Forestburg Longhorns provided little difficulty as the Cowboys only needed three quarters to punch their ticket to the postseason, claiming a 47-0 victory at Longhorn Stadium.
“Our kids were dialed in against Forestburg,” Bryson coach Jason Briles said. “We knew coming into the game that whoever won was going to the playoffs, and we just came out aggressive and never let off the gas. We’re now rewarded with back-to-back trips to the playoffs.”
Bryson came out with 16 points in the first quarter, which was matched by 12 more going into the halftime break.
There was little drama in the third quarter as the Cowboys finished off the contest with 19 points to evoke the mercy rule over the Longhorns.
Cowboys quarterback Brayden Houser turned in another solid performance as he totaled 233 yards passing on 9-of-14 throwing for the evening with six touchdowns.
