Brentwood fell for the first time all season, as surging Ravenwood got a 31-23 win on Friday.

Ravenwood quarterback Brian Garcia was the game’s star, hitting 13-of-24 passes for 175 yards and three touchdowns.

Ravenwood linebacker Anthony McCarthy had nine solo stops and two assists for the Raptors (4-1), who’ve now won four in a row.

The Raptors won despite being out-gained, 437-284, in no small part because they won the turnover battle, 3-1. Cole Carteaux and Darius Harper each had interceptions.

With the game tied at 10 late in the third quarter, Garcia threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Connor Patton, giving the Raptors their first lead of the evening.

Then, Nick Stallcup threw a 15-yard touchdown pass, giving the Ravens a 24-10 advantage.

Back came Brentwood when Carson Shacklett added a 1-yard quarterback sneak, and the Bruins cut the margin back to seven.

Brentwood kicker Matt Phillips hit a 32-yard field goal to open the scoring in the first quarter.

Later in the quarter, receiver Chase Bishop added a 25-yard touchdown for the Bruins.

Sam French added a second-quarter field goal from 26 yards to get the Raptors on the board.

Ravenwood’s Parker Nash caught a touchdown pass inside the final minute of the half, with French’s point-after tying the game.

Brentwood hosts Nolensville next Friday, while Ravenwood heads to Father Ryan.

    2. game was played at BHS so why say ‘Ravenwood defended their home turf with the win’
    3. Darius Harper had an interception for RHS in this game NOT Bryce Baines
