Brandywine routs rival Bucks 62-12

NILES — The Brandywine football team will roll into the postseason on a six-game winning streak.

The Bobcats (7-2) wrapped up the regular season with a 62-12 victory over arch rival Buchanan, which finished the year at 1-8.

Brandywine’s dynamic duo of Jordan Abrams and Robert Gordon punished the Buchanan defense all night long.

Abrams, a junior, rushed for 200 yards and four touchdowns. He scored on runs of 61, 16 and 22 yards as well as returning a punt 69 yards for a score.

Gordon, a sophomore, finished with 101 yards and touchdown runs of 34 and 13 yards.

The duo helped the Bobcats roll up 366 yards rushing on the night.

On the other side of the ball, Brandywine’s defense limited the Bucks to just 155 yards of total offense, including 110 on the ground.

Buchanan’s touchdowns came on a Aiden Kile 30-yard run and Isaiah Rimpson’s 64-yard run.

Brandywine finished the night with three interceptions, including a pair by Gabriel Gouin, including one he returned 25 yards for a touchdown.

The other Bobcat scores came on a 36-yard Bryce McLane pass to Shane Brown and a 40 yard Gouin run.

Brandywine will now await the announcement of the playoff pairings on Fox Sports Detroit Sunday night.
