GOSHEN — A good portion of the Bremen football team was in diapers the last time the program won a sectional championship in 1997. Next Friday night, the Lions will have their chance to end the drought.
Braxton Miller (207) and Brock Molebash (130) combined for 337 of Bremen’s 416 rushing yards as Bremen advanced to the Sectional 26 title game with a 42-14 win over Fairfield.
“They came out and executed the game plan flawlessly,” Bremen coach Bob Holmes said. “The coaching staff also did an outstanding job getting them ready like they have all year.”
Bremen got off to a spectacular start. Miller recovered an onside kick on the opening kickoff and ran for a 31-yard TD two plays later.
“We didn’t feel like they covered the middle of the field (on kickoffs) and we thought that was something we could take advantage of,” Holmes said. “We went with it, it turned into a huge play and set the tone for the entire night.”
