BROOKFIELD — It was a slugfest last night at Brookfield, as the Springfield Tigers and Warriors played a game that featured several big plays and a lot of scoring.
The teams combined for over 900 total yards, 11 touchdowns and five turnovers.
When the dust settled, the Tigers (2-0) went back home with a 49-28 victory.
“Our defense had to adjust a little bit, because (Brookfield was) able to move the ball on us in the first half, and it went back and forth,” Springfield coach Sean Guerriero said. “But our defense kind of settled down again and we ran to the football. I think our offense put our defense in a bad situation in the first half.”
Beau Brungard, son of Youngstown State Hall of Famer Mark Brungard, launched a 61-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Walker late the first quarter to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead.
