Raine Big Second Half Leads Petal over Brookhaven


By: Stephen Calvin Hattiesburg Patriot Sports 9/7/2012

It was a tale of two halves Friday night in Petal. After and opening drive field goal by Brookhaven, Petal’s Tyus Raine scored a touchdown making it 7-3. Just when it looked like the Petal Panthers would go up 14-3 Petal quarterback Larson Barkurn threw an interception from his Brookhaven’s three yard line into the end zone resulting in a Brookhaven touchback. Brookhaven would capitalize on that turnover and score a touchdown making that a 14 point swing making it 10-7 Brookhaven. Brookhaven would add another touchdown before the half making it 17-7.

Petal would come out swinging in the third quarter. They would Score 28 unanswered points. Tyus Raine would do all the scoring for the Petal Panthers. At the end of the third the score was 28-17.
Brookhaven seemed to still be in striking distance though. Nonetheless the Brookhaven Panthers could not get anything going and all the momentum just seemed to be with Petal. Before the end of the game Petal would bleed the clock and add another touchdown making it 35-17 which was the final score.

The offensive fire power Led by Raine combined with a great collective defensive effort proved to be too much in the end for Brookhaven to overcome. This win was reminiscent of last week’s win vs Madison Central. The Petal Panthers(3-1) have a bye week to recover and prepare as they get ready to travel to an impressive Hattiesburg High(3-0) team.
