Published 7:38am Saturday, September 15, 2012

BRIDGMAN – Courtlan Gordon’s 2-point conversion attempt was stopped with 1:26 remaining in Friday night’s Lakeland Conference clash between visiting Brandywine and Bridgman and so were the Bobcats’ chances of being 4-0.

The Bees held off a fourth quarter rally by Brandywine to post a 27-26 victory.

The Bobcats (3-1) trailed 27-14 in the final quarter following a Cooper Mosjsiejenko 42-yard field goal, which proved to be the difference in the game.

Andrew Duckett cut the lead to 27-20 on an eight-yard run, but the 2-point conversion pass failed.

Duckett then scored with 1:26 remaining to make it 27-26 on an 18-yard run. But Gordon’s 2-point conversion attempt came up inches short and the Bees survived to square their record at 2-2 and more importantly, win their opening Lakeland Conference game.

Bridgman outgained Brandywine 346-344. The Bobcats held a 261-208 advantage on the ground, led by Gordon’s 168 yards on 21 carries. He scored on a 45-yard run in the second quarter.

Brandywine’s other touchdown was a three-yard run by Marty Ward.

Bridgman’s Zeke Koch ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns.
