Big win over SMC gives Brady football 2-0 start

Week one was the Brad Ward show for the Brady football team.

In week two, though, the Eagles proved they are far from a one-dimensional team as six different player scored touchdowns in Brady’s 64-8 pounding of Stapleton-McPherson County.

Ward, who had more than 300 yards rushing against Maxwell in the first game, still led the team in total offense and points scored but it wasn’t all about the running back.


“That’s not the way our offense is set up,” said coach Bob Frederickson. “We like to move the ball around and we want to be diverse.”


On the opening series of the game the Eagles scored on a 60-yard pass play from Kyle Pohlman to Sawyer Burke.

After SMC went nowhere on its first possession, the Eagles scored again on a 16-yard run by Pohlman to take a quick 16-0 lead with 7:20 left in the first quarter.

Ward scored a pair of touchdowns on 23- and 7-yard runs to close out the first quarter with a 30-0 Brady lead.

In the second period, Ward ran in from 5 yards out and also recovered an SMC fumble in the endzone to put Brady up 44-0 with 10 minutes to play in the first half.

Tyler Kleinow had a 7-yard scoring run and Dalton Riedel caught a 40-yard pass from Pohlman to complete Brady’s first half scoring and give the Eagles what Frederickson called an unbelievable 58-0 halftime lead.
