(9-2-21) Last night’s game between rivals Brandywine and Cassopolis was moved up a day from its originally scheduled Thursday date due to a lack of officials. While COVID 19 issues are forcing some schools to cancel games, the next roadblock looks to be the shortage of officials…which is becoming a national problem,

Brandywine after a slow start and trailing after three quarters 18-14 came up big in the final quarter with 2 TDs. The six-point win was thanks to the Bobcats converting 3 out of 4 2pt conversions, while the Rangers went -0 for 4 on extra point attempts.

Brandywine Senior Ivory McCullough rushed 25 times for 150 yard, one touchdown and one 2pt conversionto lead the Bobcats. Mc Cullough has just over four hundred yards rushing after two games. QB Blake Krueger ran for 2 TDs, rand for a 2pt conversion and passed for another.
