JASPER – Brewer entered the field, ready to ruin Curry's homecoming, but Curry was ready to rumble with a huge roaring crowd and a well-sized team. Brewer's effort was strong but the Patriots came up short with a 34-14 loss to their region opponent.
The game began with the Patriots taking an initial lead. Brewer got possession of the ball and with a few quick plays, including a 75- yard pass from Lucas Wilson to Rodney Childs, they scored the first touchdown of the game.
Curry quickly countered with a 3-yard touchdown pass to running back Kyle Miller with a little more than eight minutes left in the quarter. Brewer claimed possession for only a little while because of a fumble. Miller, who had 65 yards behind him by only 5:50 in the quarter, was the star of the game. Curry heavily utilized Miller and scored another touchdown on a 1-yard run by quarterback Nick Myers to take a 14-7 lead.
Brewer needed another touchdown if they were to keep up, and the team's offense came up strong to tie the game once more. Wilson completed a 16-yard pass to Travis Campbell and another 16-yard pass to Joseph Burton. Burton pushed the ball five more yards for another Brewer touchdown to tie the game with a little more than a minute left in the first quarter.
Miller again led Curry forward, with the Brewer defense keying on the talented running back. Suddenly, Curry's Nick Myers made a53-yard touchdown pass to Josh McGinnis. The first quarter ended with Curry leading 21 to 14.
The second quarter was a struggle. Chris Humphries caught a 13-yard pass, advancing Brewer to the 50- yard line. Unfortunately, Brewer fumbled and Curry jumped on the loose ball. Possession switched back and forth until Curry made the only touchdown of the quarter, a 53-yard pass to McGinnis with just seven seconds remaining in the half.
The game's second half began with Miller having his way with the Brewer defense. Curry kicked a 22-yard field goal by Richie Ramirez, to make the score 31 to 14.
Curry fans received a major scare when Miller was tackled by Brewer's Eric Parker. He fell to the grass, and some thought this might be the end of his time in the game. To the applause of the Curry crowd, he leapt to his feet.
In the fourth quarter, Curry kicked another field goal by Ramirez. Brewer struggled to close the 20-point gap and was intercepted with 18 seconds left in the game.
