Amite scored on the first play of the game on a half back pass, but the extra point was no good. Glenbrook answered quickly on a four-play drive capped off with a run by Rhett Johnson from eight yards out for the score.

On the ensuing Drive, Ryan Sheets stripped the ball-carrier and Eastland Carrigan fell on the fumble to give the Apaches the ball in great field position.
After a long run by Jackson Powell, the Apaches completed the drive with a pass from Powell to Cale Hollis for a 15-yard touchdown. The extra point was completed by Ty Feaster to give Glenbrook a lead of 15-6.
On the next drive, Sammy Feaster stripped the ball-carrier and recovered the fumble to give Glenbrook the ball at the 33 yard-line. The following play was a 33-yard throw and catch from Powell to Sammy Feaster for the touchdown. Ty Feaster added the extra point to put Glenbrook ahead 22 to 6.

Minden’s first and only scrimmage against Captain Shreve went swimmingly as the Tide showed their class against a big-time program on Friday at The Pit.
“I felt like we got some really good reps against a solid Shreve team,” Minden coach Spencer Heard said. “This week is just about fine tuning technique and getting in better shape.”
The scrimmage was highlighted by an 80-yard touchdown run from Daylen Robinson, Trent McLaughlin’s 18-yard touchdown pass to Parker Hall, and an Isaiah Thornton interception to lead the defense.
“This team has great chemistry and is a joy to coach,” Heard said.
Minden heads to North Webster on Friday for the first official game of the 2020 season.
