The Glenbrook Apaches welcomed a very talented Adams County Christian Academy team to Apache Stadium on Friday, looking to continue their hot play and improve to 4-3.
What transpired was just the opposite.
The Apaches stopped the Rebels on their first two possessions before ACCS went on an offensive tear to defeat the Apaches, 54-6.
Glenbrook struggled to get anything going against a team that was deeper and more athletic.
“They were a whole lot better than we were,” Norton said. “it is what it is. They had guys at all the skill positions that could make you miss and they were big up front. We haven’t seen anything like that besides maybe MRA.”
Glenbrook fell to 3-4 with the loss, but still managed to do some good things that should prepare them for a rivalry game next week with Claiborne.
“We did some things well. We used the second half to work on some things and we really told the guys to put this one behind them and focus on these last three games. That’s what really matters. We’ve won the last three against Claiborne and I think our guys are already excited for that one.”
Norton says he is fully aware how much that game will mean to both sides.
“Claiborne will come out fighting,” Norton said. “The kids know each other and they are going to treat it like their super bowl.”
Game time in that contest will be 7 p.m. at Claiborne Academy.
