After winning the first four games of its football season, Brentwood will face a major test Friday night, October 5, by playing a non-league game at Paraclete.
Also unbeaten, Paraclete competes in a higher CIF division than Brentwood and has provided formidable opposition in past years.
“I enjoy the challenge, and this kind of game helps us prepare for the playoffs,” Coach Pat Brown explains in scheduling the contest.
Brentwood won at Pasadena Poly Saturday, September 29. The 34-0 victory was one of the most one-sided by the Eagles in the long history of the series.
“Our defense has been outstanding from the start of the season and it was again,” said Brown. “Ian Shaw, in particular, played very well.”
Brentwood had a 21-0 head at halftime and was able to play reserves throughout most of the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Mason Moss scored the first touchdown on a two-yard quarterback sneak, then threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Ben Oliva on a third and 10 play.
After Shaw scored on a one-yard run another Brentwood quarterback, Josh Amster, had a 65-yard touchdown run and fullback Alex Miller completed the scoring with a one-yard run.
“Amster dropped to pass, took off, and made a spectacular run,” said Brown.
Brentwood began the season by defeating Kilpatrick and then had victories over Rio Hondo Prep and Salesian. It has not yet given up a touchdown.
