This Time Brentwood Is Ready For Kilpatrick:

A year ago, Brentwood began its football season with a one-sided home field loss to Kilpatrick.

         When the schools opened the 2007 season Friday, August 31, Brentwood was a more experienced opponent and produced a 28-0 victory.

         “Some of our players were in their first varsity game a year ago,’’ said Brentwood Coach Patrick Brown. “This time with a year of experience they were more comfortable.’’

         Brown also made an adjustment. Last season he often rotated quarterbacks Mason Moss and Josh Amster on every play, a plan that was largely successful. But in this game Moss played all the way.

         “Mason is a senior and I wanted to give him this opportunity,’’ said Brown. “But Josh will get plenty of chances too.’’

         Moss threw three touchdown passes and another that resulted in a touchdown when tight end Charlie James got behind the defense, caught a ball 30 yards downfield and was hit hard and fumbled. Teammate Ben Oliva recovered in the end zone to complete the touchdown play.

         Brentwood will have a bye this week and will play at Rio Hondo Prep September 14.

         Oliva, a returning all-CIF receiver, had a 98-yard punt return in the first quarter that was called back, then caught a 20-yard scoring pass from Moss.

         Brentwood increased the lead to 14-0 on the pass to James and Oliva’s fumble recovery, then made it 21-0 on Moss’ 35-yard pass to Ben Green, Brentwood’s backup tight end.

         The only scoring in the second half was Moss’ 15-yard pass to Oliva.

         Brown praised his defensive unit, a group he expects to be one of the team’s strengths.’’

         He singled all-CIF Ian Shaw as being “all over the field.’’

         The game was well attended despite a hot afternoon and afforded Brentwood fans their only chance for a month to see the team play on the campus field.

         The next four games are away, but Brown isn’t complaining.

         “I don’t mind,’’ he said. “Road games prepare a team for the playoffs.’’

         Brentwood will have only three home games this season.
