BA’s Keegan Smith rushed for a score late in the Cougars’ 35-20 loss to ACCS Friday.

Brookhaven Academy quarterbacks  Madison Smith and Keegan Smith had a rushing touchdown apiece and running back Connor Griffin added one late.

However, ACCS jumped out to an early lead that proved too much Friday night in Brookhaven.

Senior receiver and defensive back Fisher Warren put the Cougars in good field position throughout the night with 95 kick return yards. Warren added 55 yards receiving on five catches. Madison Smith completed 9-of-20 passing for 101 yards.

The Cougars’ defense allowed 247 rushing yards, but continued to make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Griffin had two tackles for loss and Kyle Cupit had two sacks. Sophomore Sawyer Bowlin got in on the action tallying four tackles including two for loss. Ben Powe had one fumble recovery and 3.5 tackles.

The Cougars travel to Columbia this week and the homecoming date with Parklane looms on Sept. 30. Reunions of the classes of 1976, ‘86, ‘96 and 2006 will be recognized at a reception and at the game. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
