With 1:48 remaining in the game, Bronco running back LaSean Nichols-Porter saved face for the home team with a touchdown run of four yards to keep the Broncos from being shut out on their home field. Quarterback Myroen Barrett completed a pass to Kemond Rogers for the two-point conversion. But very soon afterward the final horn sounded to give the visiting Greensville High School Eagles a 44- 8 win at Armory Drive Recreational Park on Friday.

The Eagles took charge early in the game with a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Their scoring machine continued with 12 points in the second quarter and 18 points in the third quarter.

Tyvonne Carr led the Broncos in rushing with 71 yards.

Coach Carl Robertson said after the game, “We definitely came out and played a good team tonight as Greensville. We don’t take nothing away from that. We still feel that we left some plays on the field and have an opportunity to get better. We have to get back to the drawing board on Monday. The schedule is not over; we still have two games left in the season that we go out to play. But, bottom line, that is all that we have right now. We have to continue to play with our heads up. Be thankful for where our strength cometh from and continue to trust in each other.”

In comments on behalf of the team, Tyvonne Carr said, “We could have done better in everything. But as a team we stayed together. Although we did not score at all during the game, we did come up with a score in the last few minutes. We will bounce back next week and the week after that. Until then we will keep working in the weight room and on the field and in the classroom.”

During half-time, the inductees of the 2019 Wall of Excellence were escorted onto the field and introduced giving their information about why they were being recognized.

On Nov. 1, the Broncos will face the Windsor High School Dukes.
