Coming off one of their best performances in a win over Baldwyn, the Bruce Trojans put forth one of their worst in a 14-7 loss to Class 4A Center Hill last Friday.
Bruce beat Center Hill 41-20 last season at Trojan Field, but the lethargic Trojans never gained any traction in DeSoto County and suffered their second loss of the season.
“As players and coaches, this proves you have to be ready to play every week,” Bruce Coach James Ray said. “When we’re fired up and ready to play we’re real good. When we’re not we are very mediocre.”
The Trojans scored the first points of the game after a 16-play, 90-yard drive ending with a 1-yard touchdown run by Richard Freelon.
Center Hill countered with a touchdown in the final two minutes of the half to send both teams to the locker room even at seven.
The Trojans penetrated the Center Hill 20-yard line three times in the second half without earning any points.
The deciding touchdown came from Center Hill early in the fourth quarter.
Freelon finished with 108 yards rushing on 25 carries. QB Curtis Lyons rushed for 53 yards on 16 carries and completed 6-11 passes for 76 yards.
Bruce returns home this week to host winless Williams-Sullivan for homecoming.
“This will be a good test of our character,” Coach Ray said. “How we respond this Friday will be important. We better be fired up and ready to play. This begins region play and they will all be a challenge after this week.”
Kickoff this week is 7 p.m. Homecoming festivities will begin at 6:25 p.m. on the field.
