Brentwood got a 36-7 victory over McGavock in the first round of the TSSAA Class 6A playoffs on Friday.

Quarterback Carson Shacklett threw a pair of touchdowns and ran for another for Brentwood (10-1).

The Bruins will face Cane Ridge, who beat Centennial, next week in the second week of the playoffs.

Brentwood backed the Raiders up and got a safety with 5:33 left in the first quarter, the only points of the period.

A safety and a field goal separated the two teams at half, with Brentwood up 12-7. Both teams spent much of the first half trading punts, five each.

Brentwood was more able to move the ball, but had trouble protecting Shacklett, who was sacked three times in the first half.

The first touchdown came off of a 42-yard Brentwood drive started with a Raiders punt. It ended with a fade from Shacklett to Parker Bullion, a 12-yard touchdown catch that made it 9-0 in the early second quarter.

After another trading of punts, the Bruins were held to a 37-yard Matthew Phillips field goal attempt that was good with 3:01 left in the half.

With nine seconds left in the half, McGavock scored on a 71-yard pass that was caught off a tip.

The Raiders, who got the ball to start the third quarter, took up three minutes with a drive that ended with a Hank Baskin 46-yard field goal that was short.

A Raider punt led to a long Brentwood drive, spurred by key 7- and 9-yard runs by Shacklett. Shacklett then ran in a keeper from 21 yards out. The Phillips extra point made it 19-7 with 3:38 left in the third.

A Raider drive ended with a punt on fourth-and-10, and the Bruins took over on their own 2-yard line with 10:00 left in the game.

A 27-yard Phillips field goal gave the Bruins 22-7 lead with 6:09 left.

A Shacklett pass to Grant Yocam accounted for a 9-yard score extended the lead to 22.

The Raiders, in desperation mode, threw a pick. Carter McKechnie added an exclamation point with a 38-yard scoring run with 2:16 left.
