BROOKSHIRE — The unbeaten Bellville Brahma football team shut out the host Royal Falcons on Friday, 42-0, in a penalty-plagued 4A football contest.
Sixth-ranked Bellville (8-0, 3-0 in District 12-4A Division II) rushed for 305 yards and 19 first downs with senior running backs Richard Reese (15-158 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Robert Briggs (10-65 yards, 1 touchdown) leading the Brahma ground-dominated attack. Reid Vacek and Tanner Knode also rushed for scores, and Bellville quarterback Reid McCann (3-10 passing, 42 yards) threw one scoring pass to junior Tyler Fishbeck.
The Brookshire Royal Falcons (3-5, 0-3 in district) played better defensively, despite the score, however 13 penalties cost the Falcons at key moments. Offensively, Royal struggled with false starts, challenging field position and time of possession. The Falcons remain in the playoff hunt however.
“You have to find the end zone in games like this, and we didn’t do that against Bellville. They don’t make big mistakes and turn the ball over,” Royal head football coach Theadis Reagins said after the game. “We still have a chance to get to the playoffs, but we have to beat Sweeny and Wharton.”
Royal plays Friday, Oct. 29, at Sweeny (3-4, 2-1) with kickoff slated for 7p.m. Bellville plays at La Marque (5-2, 2-1) at the same time on Oct. 29.
