Guard fall behind early to No. 1 Dallas Christian, unable to rally back

Brook Hill spotted No. 1 Dallas Christian a 21-0 third quarter advantage. The Guard were able to pull back one of those touchdowns to cut their deficit to 14 points, but could not draw any closer in an eventual 42-7 loss Friday at Herrington Stadium.

It marked the third game Brook Hill was without starting quarterback Hood Taylor with receiver/cornerback Alec Kitt assuming the role under center. Kitt threw a touchdown pass to Jordon McGowen with five seconds remaining in the third quarter to account for Brook Hil’s scoring in the game.

Turnovers played a role in Brook Hill’s downfall with the Guard losing two fumbles and also throwing two interceptions.

Campbell Fletcher (2-19) was one of three Guard receivers to notch two catches in the contest, along with Parker Galbraith (2-11) and McGowen (2-17).

On defense, Chidiebere Nechi led the Guard with 11 tackles with Brooks Parham and John Dixon each delivering two tackles for los.

The Guard will next be in action Friday against Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill.
