Heritage football topped by Bracken
Although it scored the game’s first touchdown — that being a Josh Hoermann pass to Lane Sawtelle that covered 34 yards — it was host Bulverde Bracken Christian School that dominated the remainder of the contest to beat the Eagles, 64-16.
The game was ended near the end of the third period when Bracken’s Presley Day scored on a 19-yard run to the endzone, giving his team the win via the 45-point “mercy” rule.
Heritage (7-2, 1-1) will close out the regular season at home this Friday when the Spring Branch Living Rock Academy Bobcats come to town.
Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.

Josh Hoermann got the visiting Heritage Eagles off to a good start in Friday’s sixman football game at Bulverde Bracken Christian School.
But his pass to Lane Sawtelle, who turned the play into a 34-yard touchdown, put Heritage up 6-0 in the opening stanza. Hoermann also tacked on the two-point conversion kick.
But that proved to be just about the only punch Heritage had in its arsenal that evening when Bracken reeled off four consecutive touchdowns to take a 28-8 lead.
The four-tally onslaught began when Presley Day and Hunter Stirm ran for touchdowns of 13 and 36 yards, respectively, followed by a Travis Wolf pass to Day which covered 37 yards, putting Bracken up 22-8.
The Warriors then registered their fourth unanswered TD when, midway through the second period, Stirm reeled in a 30-yard aerial from Wolf, putting the hosts ahead, 28-8.
Wolf was the Warriors’ leading passer, connecting on seven of 11 passes for 226 yards.
