Both the Brown Deer and Greenfield football teams displayed heart and character Friday night in a key Woodland Conference East battle. But only the Falcons had junior quarterback Zack Baun.
For after the Hustlin' Hawks Tyler Dorfner burst up the middle for a 17-yard touchdown with 8:28 left to give Greenfield its first lead of the night at 27-24, Baun worked some of his characteristic magic.
He broke a few tackles on a run up the middle and then burst into the open for a 67-yard TD run that gave Brown Deer the lead for good at the 7:17 mark.
"I see the opening, try to visualize it and then get through it before it closes," said Baun. "It was fun tonight. The crowd was crazy, and I could see the team light up. It (that touchdown) really gave us a spark of energy."
Then after the defense, keyed by a 10-yard corner blitz sack by Nick Coleman, made a key stop, Baun sealed the deal by closing out a seven-play drive with a 28-yard dance around the edge to make it 38-27 with 2:43 to go.» Read Full Article
