Highlanders advance in football sectional, defeat Jeff PDF Print E-mail

The Floyd Central Highlanders won their first round game in the Class 5A sectional in football Friday at Jeffersonville 47-20, and Kyle Bramble scored six touchdowns in the win. Bramble had 225 yards on the night.
The win gives the Highlanders (9-1) a date with host Bedford-North Lawrence this Friday.


Despite the usual offensive fireworks of the Highlanders and stand out senior star Kyle Bramble, it was their defense that really was different from the previous meeting a few weeks back.
“Defensively, that was the best game we’ve played,” said Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing. “(Jeffersonville) is a high powered offensive team.”
Floyd got on board in the 1st quarter, off of a 10 yard run. Jason VanBuren added the PAT for a 7-0 advantage.
Floyd Central scored twice in the 2nd quarter before the Red Devils answered.
First, they scored off of a 7 yard touchdown by Bramble, and with 4:55 in the first half, Bramble struck again, this time from 10 yards out. VanBuren kicked both PATs, and Floyd led 21-0.
The Red Devils finally got on board twice in the final 3:03 of the first half, cutting Floyd’s lead to 21-14.
Bramble scored two times in the 3rd quarter for the Highlanders, first at the 7:29 mark on a short 5 yard run, and then again at the 1:20 mark. Floyd had a 34-20 lead by that time.
Just before the TD by Bramble late in the 3rd quarter which gave the Highlanders a 34-20 lead, Terrence Kennedy even got into the act, and ran almost into the end zone for a touchdown himself. Kennedy stands at 5 feet tall, according to the Floyd Central roster, and weighs all of 123 pounds.
Glesing was delighted to Kennedy get that far. “Terrence is hard to see,” Glesing said.
Jeff scored a touchdown in between the pair of touchdowns by Floyd Central in the 3rd quarter, but they fsiled to score in the remainder of the game.
Midway through the 4th quarter, the Red Devils Floyd took over possession on downs, and they scored once more with Bramble with 3:42 in the game.
But it wasn’t Bramble that scored the final touchdown of the night for the Highlanders, it was Nick Uhl, who scored his only touchdown of the season with 21 seconds left.
