Branham’s varsity football team has clinched the status of 3rd in the Santa Teresa League with their record of 4-1. The Varsity Bruins had a hard loss during the Dig Pink game on Oct. 14 against Silver Creek, with a final score of 0-13. Despite the loss, the Bruins were soon able to make a comeback. Last Saturday, the JV football team took home a win at Sobrato with a final score of 19-18, moving the team’s record to 5-3. The game was close, but a field goal after the first touchdown in the second quarter gave Branham the slight lead needed to win. This made up for JV’s last game against Silver Creek, where the only highlight was the rushing touchdown in the second quarter made by Freshman player Pati Wolfgramm. The JV game against Silver Creek ended with a score of 6-21.
The varsity team also played extremely well against the Bulldogs. Senior Jordan Modesto had an especially great game, where he rushed 223 yards and scored on a 56 yard run. Following the win against Sobrato on Oct. 23, the Bruins will play Mt. Pleasant in the second to last league game of the season, with their last game against Westmont at Branham on Nov. 4.
Westmont, who is currently undefeated in league, will surely help to provide a great game against the Bruins. The game will also be football’s senior night.
