There was no shortage of points in Friday night’s Brophy football game; the Broncos scored 28 points in the first quarter alone and cruised to a 41-9 victory over the Gilbert Tigers.
The offense was led by sophomore quarterback Chase Knox ’12 who threw for four touchdowns and 211 yards, according to East Valley Tribune statistics. Three of four touchdown throws came in the first quarter.
Josh Dennard ’11 grabbed three of those touchdown throws and running back Max Leonesio ’10 caught a TD pass and ran one in as well.
Leonesio would finish the night with 92 yards on 13 carries, the East Valley Tribune reported, and Dennard ended with 69 yards from three catches, all of which were touchdowns.
The Brophy defense smothered the Tigers all night, allowing just one touchdown. The other Gilbert points came on a safety in the second quarter.
The Bronco’s defense recovered two fumbles and grabbed an interception against Tiger quarterback Brandon Bialkowski.
The only Gilbert touchdown came on a 62-yard run by Tanner Hall, but it was too little too late as the Broncos won by a wide margin, improving their record to 2-0 on the year.
Brophy’s next game will be at home Friday, Sept. 11 against rivals the St. Mary’s Knights.
