SAN ANGELO – The Brownwood Lions shredded the Lake View Chiefs 60-13 in their second district game of the season Thursday night in San Angelo stadium.
The Lions pounced early and running back Konlyn Anderson sat out most of the second have after rushing for 156 yards and five touchdowns. Everything clicked for Brownwood while the Chiefs only had flashes.
The Lions deferred until the second half and after a quick three and out from Lake View, Anderson ran in a 2-yard touchdown with about 9:34 left in the first. Then, Brownwood would extend their lead after quarterback Ike Hall found Jason Jackson Jr. for a 45-yard score with 6:51 remaining in the opening frame.
The Lions weren’t done as they drove again, and Hall ran in a 1-yard touchdown with just over three minutes to go in the first. Anderson found the endzone again from 19 yards out to extend the Lions lead 28-0 and there was still 1:16 left in the first quarter. On the ensuing Lake View drive, the Chiefs fumbled the football, and the Lions recovered the ball and before the opening quarter ended, Brownwood had the ball on the 4-yard line.
In the first minute of the second quarter the Lions had a direct snap to Anderson who would find the endzone for a third time with 11:10 left in the first half.
Lake View had a difficult time getting out of their own way and the woes continued with 9:33 left on the punt. The ball would bounce off a Chief and dribble its way to Manley who was swarmed by Lions. The Chiefs defense would hold Brownwood to a 28-yard field goal with just under 8 minutes remaining.
About 7 minutes left, Chiefs running back Ricky Ramirez found a huge hole on the right side of the field and had a huge 60-yard run to put Lake View inside the redzone at the 8-yard line. Ramirez would finish this drive with a touchdown off a pass thrown from Bryce Medley to close the deficit 38-7 after the extra point.
Next Lions drive with about 4:42 left in the half, Hall would run in a 20-yard touchdown and extend the Lions lead 45-7. On the Chiefs drive, the Lions would sack Medley on fourth down giving Brownwood the ball in favorable field position. Who else but Anderson would find the endzone yet again, this time from 26-yards out just seconds before halftime to make the score 52-7 at the break.
In the second half, Brownwood played the starters for one series, where Anderson scored his fifth touchdown on a 3-yard run. A bad snap caused chaos, but the Lions did convert the 2-point conversion to extend the lead again 60-7.
There were signs of life from the Chiefs who did run the ball well at times against the Lions. They blocked a long field goal attempt, but the Lions would get a fumble recovery with about 7 minutes left in the game while Lake View was inside the redzone.
In the games last seconds with the Chiefs driving, Lake View would call a time out at the 11-yard line. Trying to get something positive with about :04 left in the game, Medley found Manley in the left side of the endzone for a touchdown to end the game 60-13.
It wouldn’t be honest to say there weren’t some good things Lake View did. Ramirez and Ian Cortez did find some success and Medley found Manley and Robles and Adam Robles. Brownwood proved to be a top team that was just recently ranked in the top 10 of 4A ball.
The Chiefs drop to 3-5, 0-2 in district while Brownwood improves to 6-2, 2-0 in district. Next week, the Lake View Chief play the Big Spring Steers and the Lions play Lubbock Estacado.
