Heritage wins a tight one 10-7 over Brookville at City Stadium

City Stadium, Lynchburg, VA – It’s always a wild night when the Brookville Bees and Heritage Pioneers face off. Friday’s game was no exception. The teams were playing for a whole lot more than a “W” as the Cochran cup (a trophy awarded to the regular season winner of the Bees/Pioneers match-up) was on the line. Plus, Brookville ended Heritage’s season last year and, to top it all, it was the Pioneer’s homecoming game. Both squads left it all on the field as Brookville QB 7 Drake McDaniel literally jumped over a Heritage player on his way to a TD before it was called back by a controversial flag. Heritage QB 9 HOV Bateman rocketed a pass to WR 19 Emeere Kelso, electrifying the crowd with a 57-yard score. Brookville WR 3 Stephen Preston pulled in a McDaniel heave with a one armed catch for 63-yards. Despite the low score, it’s safe to say the highlight reel was packed with incredible moments. It was Heritage’s defense that had the biggest highlight of all during the final seconds of the game. After the Bees recovered a Heritage fumble 30 yards away from a TD and victory, the Pioneer defense didn’t crack. Heritage held Brookville and McDaniel, who picked up a staggering 327 combined yards on the night, two yards away from a first inside the Heritage ten after LB 23 Markus White wrestled the Brookville QB down. Pioneer Head Coach Bradley liked what his defense gave him, “I’m proud of my kids and hats off to our defense… and [Brookville’s] Coach Meeks. They played hard and I thought it was a… physical slobber-knocker of a Seminole district football game. We just made one more play.”
