Eagle Jose Gamboa has a handful of the Kenesaw ball carrier's jersey as teammates Michael Houchin (68) and Karson Novacek (16) look to finish off the play during Bruning-Davenport/Shickley's 22-20 loss to the Blue Devils. The Eagles (1-1) fell behind the 2-0 Blue Devils and their shifty sophomore quarterback Tyler Schnitzler 16-0 early before having a chance to finish the comeback on the game's final possession. "It looked like we were going to get ran off the field, but we showed a lot of heart and courage to fight back," BDS coach Mark Rotter said. "Then, when we got back in it, we had a few critical mistakes that doomed us." Game statistics between the two squads were nearly equal. BDS had 12 first downs compared to 11 for Kenesaw, while the Blue Devils produced 309 yards of total offense compared to 290 for the Eagles. Both teams committed three turnovers in the contest. Houchin led the BDS defense with 19 tackles.
