    By Jon Charron

    We executed, we did work, came out 100 percent right away, and just put them away,” senior linebacker Keenan Selbicky said about his team’s first half performance at Gonzales on Friday night [10-24-14].

    On a night that was celebrating Gonzales High’s seniors, the Breakers did a little celebrating of their own. The Breakers were relentless in the first half, putting up 42 points and 266-yards of total offense. The defense did their part too, by holding the Spartans to only 68-yards of total offense and 0 points. Without needing to attempt a single pass, the Breakers ran the ball 35 times for 345-yards on their way to a 48-8 victory.

    On the opening kick-off, Jason Leach set the Breakers up with good field position by returning the kick to the Spartan 48-yard line. It only took the Breaker offense five plays and less than two minutes to score the games’ first touchdown, a 10-yard run by John Buttrey.

    The speed of Jason Leach was seen first-hand by the Gonzales defenders, when on the Breakers next possession, he took the hand-off from Anthony Coppla and raced 55-yards down the right sideline to put the Breakers up 14-0. After a Sam Fenstermaker interception gave the ball back to the Breakers at their own 43-yard line, Leach finished off the 57-yard drive with a 22-yard touchdown run.

    The Breakers wouldn’t stop there though. With 7:53 left in the second quarter, Leach scored his third rushing touchdown of the half. This time from 16-yards out, he gave the Breakers a 28-0 lead. After another quick three-and-out, the Spartans attempted a punt from their own 10-yard line. However, the punt only went 11 yards, giving the Breakers the ball at the Spartan 21-yard line. Four plays later, Uche Ebu would make them pay by rumbling into the end zone from 8 yards out. The Breakers would go into the half being up 42-0 after Noah Cryns joined the party and scored on a 34-yard run.

    To start the third quarter, the Breakers would cap off a 53-yard drive with another touchdown, this time, on a hard fought 4-yard run by Jorge Cabrera. After the PAT was blocked, the Breakers would go up 48-0.

    With 2:33 left in the game, the Spartans ended the Breakers’ eight-quarter scoreless streak on an 81-yard touchdown pass.

    We still have a lot to learn,” Keenan Selbicky said after his teams’ performance on the field, “but so far we’re doing great.”

    The Breakers (6-1, 4-0) will play their next game at home against King City (3-4, 2-2) on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
