Coach Weiner Hit Milestone with Win Against Broadmoor

Click here for highlights from The Advocate

The Bears football team defeated a scrappy Broadmoor team on Friday and improved their record to 2-0 with a comfortable 29-8 victory. The team was lead by the defense that allowed only 39 yards of total offense (and was not scored on; Broadmoor’s defense picked up a fumble for their only points).

The defense, lead by the starting line of Jason Peters, Ooby Williams, Kyle Free, and Mathew Broha, controlled the interior all game. Sr. Linebacker Chris Gremillion had several crushing tackles on Broadmoor’s option plays and established the physical style that is a trademark of C.H.S. defense.

The Bears offense was not as crisp as their first game. Eleven fumbles and timely holding penalties hurt their chances of scoring more points. Long runs by Red Minnor and Jeremy Stewart were wiped away by penalties and scoring opportunities were lost because of improper ball handling. Jr. quarterback Ryan Lewis went 8-11 with two touchdowns throwing often to Matt Sinclair, Thomas Broussard, and Daren Lucy. Coach Weiner promised a stronger focus for next week but was pleased with the physical style of play.

The excited intensity of the team showed in their physical style. Coach Weiner and his staff want to thank all those who came out to support the team. The crowd’s exuberance has and will continue to help the team this year.

The Tara Trojans (0-2) are up next. The game will take place at Olympia Stadium at 7:00 on Friday night. Buy your tickets early at the C.H.S. bookstore (get them early because they were sold out for the Broadmoor game) and avoid the line on game day.
