CLARKSVILLE — West Creek played host to Brentwood Friday in a Region 7-5A game, but the Coyotes found themselves outmatched.
Brentwood managed five touchdowns and a field goal in the first half and went on to crush West Creek 44-0 Friday at Coyotes Stadium.
West Creek (0-7, 0-4) was unable to establish any offense on the night as Brentwood (4-3, 4-0) scored at will.
Brentwood’s scoring was fast and furious from Parker Bullion’s touchdown reception in the first quarter until halftime.
Each team’s first possession resulted in a punt, but West Creek’s defense was unable to stop Brentwood and quarterback Carson Croy for the remainder of the game.
Croy scored two rushing touchdowns in the first half, while teammates Ahmad Arnold and John Robertson were able to find the end zone and kicker Tucker Day added a field goal.
The only score in the second half came on a Croy pass to Bullion.
West Creek’s only highlight came when Tyler Moore snagged an interception, but the Coyote’s weren’t able to convert.
“We took a pretty good butt-kicking tonight,” West Creek coach Jon Offutt said. “Coach (Ron) Crawford and I have known each other since our days at Middle Tennessee State. He is a very good coach. He and his staff do a really good job. It won’t be too long before he has them back on top.”
Offutt said his Coyotes graduated a lot of their skill players last year.
“We are really young,” Offutt said. “I’ve only got three seniors who have played four years. Of our 65 players, I would say 45 of them are sophomores and freshmen, so this is a work in progress and well keep going at it.”
Brentwood, meanwhile, remains tied atop the region standing, at 4-0, with Henry County who dropped Rossview and Centennial who beat up on Clarksville High Friday night.
“We made some mistakes in the first half,” Crawford said. “But, we came out and played clean in the second half, we had a running clock and we got a lot of kids in the game. Overall, we did some of the things that we wanted to do. We still need to play more mistake-free football, especially as we get down the stretch here.”
