Special Teams Play Huge Role in BA vs Brentwood

Brentwood High School hosted Brentwood Academy for the first time since 2002 in the “Battle of Brentwood.” Both teams entered play 1-0 on the season. BA won their home opener against Lipscomb last week and the Bruins beat Nolensville.

BA would add another touchdown just before halftime on a fourth down touchdown run from a yard out. They would carry that 24-7 lead into half.

BA would get the ball to start the second half. They were stopped in what looked like punting territory, but instead kicked a 54 yard field goal to increase the lead to 27-7.

After a BA turnover, the Bruins scored a touchdown to reduce the lead to 27-14. However, BA would take momentum back as they would return their second kickoff for a touchdown.

The fourth quarter would be scoreless and BA would walk out with a win.
