Brown County headed to Southeastern IL to take on the Cumberland Pirates in game of two halves.  The first half was all about the Pirates and their ability to eat the clock and be patient.  Brown County would get a big play on offense or defense, only to find that they had committed a penalty to erase the effort.  Cumberland would strike on the first play of the 2nd Quarter to take a 6-0 lead.  The Hornets made multiple attempts to tie it up before the half but their penalties kept killing their drives and Cumberland took a 6-0 lead into the Half.  Brown County got the ball to start the second half and they looked like a totally different team.  They marched right down the field and capped off the drive by a 11 yd TD run for Rick Logsdon, the extra point gave the Hornets a 7-6 lead.   Cumberland QB Kendal Butler, determined to lead his team back into this game, broke open a 30 yd run but could not hold on to the ball and gave the Hornets a huge momentum swing.  The ensuing drive resulted in a TD reception for Justin Volk and increased the BC lead to 14-6.  Once again, Cumberland was threatening in the 4th quarter and Justin Volk came up huge on defense.  Volk picked off a pass from Butler and returned it 45 yds to set up the next scoring drive.  Brown County got another TD from Logsdon and advance to the Quarterfinals with a 20-6 victory.  Kendal Butler was as good as advertised for Cumberland as he finished the day with 116 yards rushing and 49 yards through the air.  For Brown County, Rick Logsdon finished the day with 2 TD’s and 168 yards rushing while Justin Volk led the receiving department for the Hornets with 42 yards and 2 INT’s.  The win sets up a great rematch between WIVC North Rivals, Triopia & Brown County, in Mt. Sterling to decide who advances to the Semifinals.
