The Broadwater Academy Vikings traveled to Blackstone, Virginia Friday, defeating the Kentston Forest 44 – 24 to keep their conference playoff hopes alive. With a stunning running attack and tight defense, Broadwater jumped on Kentson Forest quickly, taking an early 21 -0 lead, mainly behind the power running of the Major twins. Austin Murphy, behind the super blocking of Liam Kelly, was able to stand in the pocket and pick apart the defense. At the end of the first half, Broadwater held a 44 – 0 lead.
With a commanding lead, Coach Palmer was able to play much of the freshman squad for a good part of the second half. Even after giving up some scores, the young Vikings gained some very good experience, including an interception and fumble recovery.
