Mistakes prove costly for Brewer in loss to Walker

FLORETTE – Two fumbles, a blocked punt and a pass interception in the second quarter proved to be more than what Brewer’s Patriots could overcome as they fell to Walker’s Vikings 50-15 in a 5-A, Region 6 home game Friday night.
Trailing 0-22 going into the second half of the second quarter, the Patriots cut the deficit to 7-22 on a 24-yard Matt Mann to Jordan Bowling pass and a PAT conversion by Hunter Eddy.
They got the ball back 30 seconds later when Jordan Bowling recovered a fumble on Walker’s 36-yard line, giving his team an opportunity to cut further into Walker’s lead. On the first play from scrimmage, however, Eric Vinson picked off a Matt Mann pass on his own six-yard line to shut down the threat.
The Vikings then engineered a 94-yard touchdown drive and converted two other Brewer mistakes into scores before halftime.
“We are our worst enemy at times,” said Brewer head coach Daniel Gullion. “Had we made the catch on their six and gone on to score we would’ve been a touchdown and a two-point conversion away from tying the game. Instead, we turn the ball over on our next two possession and they get easy touchdowns and go up 43-7 at halftime.
“We’re glad to have Jordan Bowling back after an injury,” Gullion added. “He helped our offense with his two touchdown catches.”
“The season isn’t over,” he pointed out. “We’ve got three games left and our focus is going to be to finish strong.”
The Vikings scored the first time they had the ball, marching 60 yards on four plays and getting in the end zone on a 23-yard run by Brandon Douglas with 8:20 left in the first period. Hunter Wisdom added the PAT to make the score 7-0.
They scored again with 5:31 left in the same period on a 25- yard pass from Carson Roberts to Max Young. Douglas converted a two-point conversion on a running play to make the score 15-0.
A 15-yard runback of a blocked put accounted for Walker’s third score. It came with 6:17 left in the second period. Wisdom’s PAT gave his team a 22-0 lead.
Bowling’s 24-yard touchdown catch came with 5:42 left in the first half and followed a 56-yard run by William Loosier. Eddy’s PAT cut the lead to 22-7.
The Vikings stretched their lead to 29-7 on a one-yard run by Douglas with 3:24 left in the first half and a PAT conversion by Wisdom.
They scored again with 2:04 left in the half on a 31-yard run by Douglas. Wisdom’s PAT kick made the score 36-7.
Their final points of the half came on a 12-yard run by Young with 1:35 left in the half. Wisdom added the PAT to make the score 43-7.
Walker’s final touchdown was scored on a 15-yard pass from Roberts to Michael Tedford with 9:59 left in the third period. Joseph Pedroza kicked the extra point to make the score 50-7.
Brewer’s second touchdown came on a 13-yard pass from Mann to Jordan Bowling with 4:39 left in the fourth quarter.
Hunter Bramlett ran the ball in for a two-point conversion to make the score 50-15.
Jordan Bowling paced Brewer on offense with five catches for 86 yards and two touchdowns. Casey Vest had three catches for 38 yards and Loosier rushed for 64 yards on six carries.
The Patriots will travel to Hayden for another Region 6 contest Friday night.
