GLENCOE, Ala. – After falling to Southeastern in a wild, 57-53 shootout at home last week, the Holly Pond Broncos were back on the road Friday night for a non-region matchup at Glencoe. The Broncos led the way 14-13 early in the first half but the Yellow Jackets responded with 27 unanswered points to take commanding lead before pulling away to win it 54-20.

After a pair of quick scores, Holly Pond led Glencoe 14-13 midway through the opening quarter, but the Yellow Jackets answered quickly, taking a 26-14 lead early in the second. Glencoe was able to find the end zone one more time before the end of the second quarter and went into the locker room leading the Broncos 33-14 at the halftime break.

Another touchdown made it a 40-14 game with a little over eight minutes to play in the third quarter, but Holly Pond found the end zone to stop the scoring run and trim the lead to 40-20 late in the third. Unfortunately, the Broncos weren’t able to chip away any more of the lead and the Yellow Jackets held on to collect a 54-20 win over Holly Pond.

The Broncos will look to bounce back next week when they travel to Gaston for another region game.
