The Brewer Patriots broke a school record by rushing for more than 450 yards in a 61-6 blowout of Vinemont on homecoming Friday night.
The “bad habits” that head coach Dan Styles said the Patriots were re-emerging over the last couple of weeks were not on display during the record-breaking night.
Not long after senior Taylor Maxwell was crowned homecoming queen at James R. Tucker Stadium, the Patriots took control of the game.
With a great push from up front, Nathan Stewart added his first of three touchdowns on an impressive 32-yard run over the right end. Weston Greene added the extra point.
Hunter Swafford led the offense back on the field and handed the ball to his running-game teammates. Drew Styles ran up the middle for a 48-yard touchdown.
The Eagles found success on a second-quarter drive. Corey Woods broke a few tackles to score Vinemont’s only points of the game.
Stewart scored twice more before halftime, running for touchdowns including a 45-yard, helping put the Patriots up 27-6 heading into the third quarter.
TJ Morrow, who accounted for 131 yards only on 11 carries, crossed the goal line twice in the quarter, scoring on runs of 12 and eight yards.
Greg Johnson and Blake Borden added three more scores and pushed the Brewer rushing yardage past 450, breaking a 30-year record.
Styles made it known that the Patriots (2-3, 1-2) will have to manage their time as they travel across the Tennessee River bridge to play region opponent Columbia (1-4, 0-3) in Thursday night game at Milton Frank Stadium.
