Brandon-Evansville football falls at Underwood in playoff opener

The season ended on the road against Underwood Tuesday for the Brandon-Evansville football team in a 48-14 loss in the opening round of the Section 4 9-Man tournament.

Underwood jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the second quarter against Brandon-Evansville and did not look back. Head coach Tim Pattrin said injuries from earlier games forced him to start some of the team’s younger players against Underwood.

The Chargers were only able to rush for a total of 85 yards while passing for 102. Quarterback Tom Bosek completed only three passes, but two were for long touchdowns. McKennen Plaster caught one pass for 62 yards and a touchdown, and Collin Carlson caught a 32-yard pass in the fourth quarter for a touchdown. Skyler Quinn also caught one pass for eight yards.
