Brazoban records five touchdowns as the Dolphins Tame the Bulldogs
On Friday evening at beautiful and sunny Luke Urban Field on the grounds of BMC Durfee High School, the Doran Dolphins (1-2) flag football team picked up their first victory of the season over the Henry Lord Bulldogs (0-3), 34-13.
The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead after forcing a turnover on Doran's opening drive. The Bulldogs intercepted a Marco Brazoban pass intended for wide receiver Cristian Santiago. On the ensuing drive, the Bulldogs marched down the field, thanks to two Doran penalties. They proceeded to score on a 20-yard quarterback roll out to make the game 7-0 with 1:45 remaining in the first quarter. Doran quickly responded and was able to tie the game at 7-all after Santiago scored on a 16-yard run thanks to some great blocking by the Doran offensive line to close out the first quarter.
The Dolphins forced a Bulldogs three-and-out on the opening drive of the second quarter before Doran took the lead for good. Brazoban completed a short-pass to halfback Amannie Chiclana for a 26-yard gain. This was followed by a 13-yard run by fullback Dionte Carberry and a Brazoban 1-yard quarterback sneak to give the Dolphins a 14-7 lead at halftime.
The third quarter saw a lot of great defense for the Dolphins. They managed to increase their lead to 21-7 after Brazoban scored from 10-yards out on another quarterback roll-out with 4:25 remaining in the third quarter. Despite forcing another Dolphins turnover on their next drive, the Bulldogs were unable to capitalize as they were forced into another three-and-out. For the game, the Dolphins forced three-and-outs on six of the Bulldogs eight possessions in the game.
The Dolphins opened the fourth quarter by forcing a Bulldogs fumble. They tacked onto their lead with another touchdown by Brazoban to make the game 28-7. However, on the next drive the Bulldogs responded with a long touchdown pass to make the game 28-13 with two minutes to play. The Dolphins were able to add some insurance with a 40-yard touchdown pass from Brazoban to Santiago. For the game, Brazoban finished with five touchdowns - four rushing, and one passing.
The Dolphins next play on Saturday, June 9th at 7:45am against Atlantis Charter School.
