After three games apiece, the Brookfield seventh grade football team sits at 0-3 and the eighth graders are rolling at 3-0.
Both teams traveled to Macon last Tuesday, and the eighth grade won in impressive 38-12 fashion, while the seventh grade boys had a tough time getting any offense rolling and fell 24-0.
“This was a game we really have wanted to replay since last fall when Macon came to Burlington and
beat us on our home field," Brookfield coach Tim Thomason said of his eighth grade group. "We did not play well that day and felt like we beat ourselves. I am very happy with our physical play so far after the first half of our season, but we have a lot of little things that we have got to fix if we really want to accomplish all of our team goals for this year.”
Thomason said that his seventh graders still have progress to make, and that the past few games, including a big loss to Palmyra, are not an accurate representation of that team's capabilities.
"We still make too many mistakes mentally and physically to consistently compete. We will continue to work and try to get better every day at practice. Our seventh graders are still learning how to compete at a higher level.”
