FC continues hot start, wins 52-42 over Jeff PDF Print E-mail

Kyle Bramble had another one of those nights for the Floyd Central Highlanders Friday night at Blair Field in Jeffersonville, as the Highlander senior amassed 380 yards himself, en route to scoring six touchdowns. Floyd Central ended up outscoring the Red Devils, and defeated Jeff 52-42 in a Hoosier Hills Conference game.
“Thank goodness he’s on our team, or we wouldn’t have won this game,” said a relieved Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing of Bramble, after the game.
It didn’t necessarily start out that way for the Highlanders, as the Red Devils drew first blood, when in the 1st quarter Austin Hines scrambled in for the first touchdown of the night, putting Jeff up 7-0 at the 10:26 mark.
The Highlanders then scored three times the remainder of the opening quarter, with a pair of touchdowns and a safety.
The safety got Floyd on board at the 7:25 mark, and Bramble added both TDs. First, he ran in from 48 yards out (7:09), but the 2 point conversion run failed. Then, he scored off of an 80 yard pass from team mate Bryce Smith (2:29) to finish out the period.
Bramble scored once again in the early going of the 2nd quarter (11:03), but the Red Devils answered with a TD of their own again, pulling to within 22-15 with 7:31 left.
In a game where a total of 94 points are scored between both teams, that would not be expected to be the last score of the first half, and it wasn’t.
Floyd Central scored at the 7:14 and the 3:40 marks with touchdowns, the first one being a touchdown off of a 73 yard run by Bramble, and the latter being off of a 46 yard pass from Bryce Smith to Gus Schoenbaechler.
Jeff scored again right before the half (:45), when the Red Devils’ quarterback Dalton Conway threw a 9 yard pass to Marcus Gray.
Floyd had one more scoring opportunity left in the first half,

and they managed a 43 yard field goal from Jason Van Buren with no time left.
After each team intercepted at least one pass from the other team in the early stages of the second half, Jeff finally scored with 3:28 left in the 3rd to climb to within 12, at 39-27.
Bramble answered with another touchdown just before the end of the period (:11), and the Highlanders led 46-27.
Jeff managed to score once more with 4:08 left in the game, putting more pressure on the Highlanders, and getting to within 46-35. Floyd Central then scored their final touchdown with 59 seconds left in the contest, when Bramble ran one in from short yardage. The PAT failed, but floyd led 52-35 with less than a minute left.
Jeff answered one final time, when 11 seconds later they punched one into the end zone, along with the PAT.
“Neither team could stop the other,” said a relieved Glesing after the game. “Luckily, we were able to run the ball, and get a lead on them. They’ve (Jeff) got a lot of weapons. We might meet again in the playoffs.”
Glesing cited the problems his team had in covering the passing zones, not lining up properly on some defensive line ups, and trying to contain Jeff’s speed on the outside.
The Highlanders will have all week to prepare for their trip to play the Columbus East Olympians in a crucial Hoosier Hills Conference battle. The Olympians are seven time defending champions of the league. Floyd Central now stands at 5-0 overall, is ranked No 5 in the latest Class 5A poll, and are of course undefeated in the conference.
The Highlanders amassed a total of 566 yards in the game, to 500 for Jeff. Jeff out passed Floyd 389-160, while the Highlanders had the ground attack in hand 406-111.
