Despite Corum’s huge touchdown trifecta, Ads fall to unbeaten Bradley on last play, a 41-yard field goal
Unbeaten Bradley Central (8-0, 4-0) overcame giving up a tying score following a fumble deep in FHS territory with less than seven minutes to play, then overcome giving up a 69-yard touchdown pass with two minutes left — both late scores from senior receiver Trace Corum.
Tied 28-28, the Bears drove to the FHS 24 — aided by a pass interference call in the closing seconds, and nailed a 41-yard field goal as tim expired to win 31-28.
A rushing attack featuring the power and speed of Bears running back Jackson Wilson and the elusiveness of quarterback Aiden McClary — plus the Admirals offense going three-and-out on three straight second-half possessions, helping to tire an otherwise determined Farragut defense.
Admirlas skipper Eddie Courtney Courtney pointed to “a couple of missed blocking assignments” to explain the stagnation.
As a result, Courtney said his defense “was out their for a bunch of plays.”
