The 2012 Football season kicked off in Mt. Sterling last night as Brown County hosted Calhoun in a week 1 battle.  The start of this game looked to be a game of strong defenses but Brown County finally turned up the Offense in the 2nd quarter.  The 2nd quarter scoring started with Braxton Phelps getting 75 & 26 yard touchdown runs.  Then towards the end of the quarter Michael Scoggin had a 35 yard pick 6 interception to bring us to a 36-6 halftime score in favor of BC.  Calhoun came out in the 2nd half and really dominated the offensive side of the game with a couple of touchdowns but it would not be enough as Brown County picked up the 36-18 victory.  Brown County definitely had  a lot of trouble on defense in the 2nd half as they could not get a stop and just looked out of sync the entire half.  Calhoun’s Tavis Gauntt lead the team with 92 yards over 7 carries while Brown County’s Braxton Phelps lead the Hornets with 164 yards over 9 carries.  Both teams showed some positives last night but they have a lot they can improve on. Best part is this was only week 1 and they have 8 more weeks of football to improve upon.
