Liberty Christian stings Brookville early in 47-7 win on Friday

Stinger Stadium, Lynchburg, VA – Liberty Christian
jumped out to an early lead and never looked back in a much anticipated game between Seminole District rivals. LCA’s vaunted run game was expected, but the Bulldog’s passing game was another story. LCA scored twice in their first three plays from scrimmage on the long ball. To start the game, the Bulldog’s defense held the Bees to a four and out. When Coach Frank Rocco got the ball he wasted little time going for the gold. He lined up his ‘all everything’ Sophomore sensation – RB 8 Gideon Davidson – at WR and then gave QB 7 Joe Borchers the green light. Davidson caught the bomb in stride and dashed into the end zone from 56-yards out. Coach Rocco thought Brookville would be stacked up inside to stop number eight on the run. “We though it might be tough sledding early, that they’d be loading up the box, trying to stop Gideon… so we put him out at receiver and let him use his speed. That just got the thing going. On LCA’s third play on offense, they tried it again, to WR 6 Jaden Skates. This time it was good from 64 yards out. After stretching the Bees, then the run game opened up. LCA scored on 5 of it’s 6 drives in the first half opening up a 35-0 lead at the break. Gideon added two more rushing TDs from a yard out and from the thirty-four yard line. Brookville never quit. They held the Bulldogs on their first second half possession, and then went on a scoring march themselves. QB 7 Drake McDaniel finished it off from a yard out. But LCA and Gideon answered, finishing with TD runs of eight and fifty-seven yards.
