Brentwood Academy’s Max Mullen goes in for a touchdown after intercepting a pass during the Ensworth-Brentwood Academy game on Friday.

On the first drive of the game, Brentwood Academy linebacker Max Mullen intercepted a screen pass from Ensworth quarterback Coleman Goodwin and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown. The Eagles’ special teams followed that with a blocked punt for a touchdown, as they raced to a 12-0 lead.

“The defense and special teams came out early and set the tone for our team,” said Brentwood Academy coach Cody White.

Ensworth (3-4, 1-2) battled back, thanks to a 51-yard touchdown pass from Goodwin to Rodney Owens, cutting the lead to 12-7.

But in the end, turnovers cost the Tigers.

“You cannot have six turnovers in a game against a bad team,” said Ensworth coach Ricky Bowers. “We did some good things in parts of the game. But you really cannot have six turnovers against a good team.”
